Vegan Royal Wedding Scones with ‘Clotted Cream’ and Strawberry Jam

There is something I have been hiding from you for the past month.

I have a deep, dark secret.

And I think some of you might too.

I have been totally sucked into the Royal Wedding hype!

I know, I know. I swore that I wouldn’t, but the media hoopla wore me down. I’ve watched several interviews and documentaries and with each one I get a bit more excited for the wedding, to the point where I’m looking in the mailbox wondering where my invite is! I mean, I feel like I know the couple at this point, don’t you? Not to mention, I used to have a huge crush on the Prince when I was a teenager. Didn’t he get my letter?

To make matters worse, Eric and I watched the Wills & Kate straight-to-TV movie last weekend. Ok, that’s a bit embarrassing to admit, even for me. I guess it would be more embarrassing for Eric, but he was being nice because I was so sick. That’s what husbands do. They watch corny straight-to-TV movies when need be.

I might’ve also bribed him with scones…

Then I started thinking, well, maybe I’m not the only one who has been watching countless Royal Wedding news. Maybe I’m not the only one who has dreamed of being BFF’s with Kate or guessed how drunk Prince Harry will be at the reception. These are all things that a normal person might think about.

Yesterday, a reader named Katie asked me if I had any ideas for a healthy vegan Royal Wedding recipe. That was when I knew that there were others out there just like me! I didn’t have to hide any longer.

I thought about making traditional scones with white flour, but white flour just doesn’t leave me feeling my best when I eat it. After experimenting with so many different flours, I greatly prefer the nutty flavour of whole grains, and the energy boost that comes along with them.

So these are not your dainty traditional scones, but what better than to have nontraditional scones to go with a modern royal couple?

We are breaking traditions here my friends!

IMG_5029-2

These delightful little scones are made with a mix whole-grain spelt flour and oat flour (that I made from processing rolled oats). I threw some frozen blueberries in at the last minute with a sprinkle of coarse Turbinado sugar and the outcome was definitely suited for royalty.

But I didn’t stop there. I whipped up a modified vegan version of clotted cream that I spotted in Vegan Yum Yum’s Cookbook. It was just the right amount of creamy sweetness to top each scone.

And of course, a dollop of strawberry jam on top and a cup of Black tea!

Ok, who wants to have a tea party with me tomorrow? :)

LOVE that you did a Royal Wedding post! My fiance and I are totally sucked in as well and read every bit of news we can about the event! So exciting! The scones and cream are just lovely.

Hahaaha this is so perfect for the Royal Wedding! When is the actual wedding anyway? I feel like it should have happened by now! I’m not really into it, I don’t really get the hype, but I gladly will if it means eating some delicious scones! :D

I haven’t gotten sucked into the Royal Wedding, but I do get updates from my mom, and my boyfriend, who’s Australian, and who keeps me up to date with all news, especially from the Commonwealth.

Oooh me please!!! I had a huge crush on Prince Will when I was younger too. I haven’t been fully sucked in by the hype yet, but I do want to watch the live stream tomorrow morning (posted it on my blog today!) mainly to see Kate’s dress!! My mum watched the straight-to-TV movie last week as well and I’m kind of wishing I had too! Enjoy your scones Ange, they’re gorgeous as always!! :)

It’s like you knew I was making blueberry spelt scones tonight for a royal wedding party tomorrow! Yes, I have also been dragged into the hype (who isn’t going to wake up at 4am just to see a wedding dress?!). Don’t forget, they are taking a trip to Canada in July! Oh, and if you want really dorky, E! Online has a royal title generator, its a good time!

Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table April 28, 2011 at 9:33 am

The coverage 3 weeks in advance of the event turned me off at first… but I’m totally guilty now that it’s so close. As much as I wanted to resist… I can’t wait to see what Kate’s dress looks like! :)

Nikita April 28, 2011 at 9:34 am

I’m absolutely not the type to be interested in celebrity lives… but I find myself oddly sucked in to the royal wedding hype also! I’ve been trying to think of how to convince my husband to watch it with me lol. Maybe a sweet treat?

Tara @ trulysimplebits April 28, 2011 at 9:36 am

aw LOVE that you made scones in celebration of the wedding. great idea! I am slowly getting warped into the whole royal wedding stuff too and I will be watching in full force tomorrow. Bring it on!!

Reply

Angela April 28, 2011 at 9:39 am

That’s so funny. I am planning on making scones for the Royal Wedding as well! I couldn’t think of any particularly English mid morning foods so am having afternoon tea in the morning.

I’m not surprised you have been sucked in. By the sounds of it everywhere else in the world is in total wedding overdrive compared to here in the UK.

Angie @ Musings of a Violet Monkey April 28, 2011 at 9:42 am

I’m a die-hard Anglophile, and have my DVR set to tape 11 hours of wedding coverage on Friday, on BBC America. (!!!!) My Mom and I watched Princess Diana’s wedding in ’81; and when I was 16 y/o I saw Diana in person, in London. I have always loved all things royal family, London, etc. (Hence the 2 years I spent living over there in my 20′s!)
I’m planning on getting up extra early tomorrow to see what I catch while getting ready for work. Then, this weekend – it’s DVR time! :)

Liv @ The Salty n' Sweet April 28, 2011 at 9:42 am

I really can’t wait for the wedding! I live in HK, so people still feel very attached to the British royal family, and there are so many parties being held all over town.

But it’s also a love or hate kinda thing. Some people are so fed up with it, but I’m sure everyone’s a little excited on the inside :D

Ashley April 28, 2011 at 9:43 am

I’ve got the wedding set to record! I’m very excited– such a fairytale! I’m not going to be home to watch it until Sunday, so it will be a late tea party, haha. These scones look wonderful! My boyfriend loves scones with his coffee:)

Ironically, I saw this post while I’m waiting for batch #2 of scones to come out of the oven! Perfect wedding watching treat :) I made cranberry orange, but yours look delicious also!

And I’ve dragged my boyfriend into watching all of the specials, interviews, movies, etc. also, so Eric isn’t alone ;-)

You are so cute!! hahaa I haven’t seen a lick of the coverage, but now you’re kind of making me wish I did. Or, really, I just want a scone + your company. But, not while you’re sick. ;) I have never had clotted cream!

Anna April 28, 2011 at 10:07 am

I got totally sucked in too!! I watched the movie, but my excuse is that I knew one of the actors in it from high school (rubbish excuse I know), and now I find myself debating whether to get up at 5am to watch it, or if I can be satisfied with DVR-ing (so long as no-one spoils the dress surprise…) Eeek!!

Jess April 28, 2011 at 10:08 am

You’re DEFINITELY not alone. ;) I’m getting up at 4:30am to stream the 5am wedding…mmhmmm…going to make something delicious for myself. Possibly these, or your Fruity Baked Oatmeal. Love it. :D

Caitie @ The Caitie Experiment April 28, 2011 at 10:08 am

I’m moderately embarrassed to admit my total fascination and excitement over the marriage of two people I don’t even know — but COME ON, I could recite William’s entire name by the time I was 12! (PWAPLMWoW would look great on an LL Bean bag, no?). I actually have a big event tomorrow night and I’m going to look horrid in all the photos, because there is NO WAY I’m NOT waking up at 4:45 so I can watch. I remember being such a zombie the entire weekend of Princess Diana’s funeral — I had to be peeled away from the tv!

Reply

Kate April 28, 2011 at 10:12 am

I am so sick of all the media coverage on it, but I do actually want to see the wedding :) Your scones look awesome! I am planning cucumber sandwiches and tea for Friday, just for fun.

Megan @ Healthy Hoggin' April 28, 2011 at 10:14 am

Ha, my husband and I recorded that TV movie on Will and Kate, too! Glad we’re not the only ones. :D

I totally got sucked into all the hoopla around the Royal Wedding, too! I’m so excited to watch it tonight/early morning. It’s gonna hurt to stay up that late, though. (it airs at 3am in Los Angeles!) Might need to squeeze in a nap between 11pm and 3 am!

My husband told me he wants to celebrate by eating Burger KING and Dairy QUEEN– appropriate, right? LOL ;) I think your scones sound WAY better!!!

I literally can not wait!

I was 4 when Charles and Diana got married and can vaguely remember the wedding and the whole country being swept into a frenzy so I can not wait to see our future King marry such a gorgeous, down to earth girl.

Oh and we get a day off work for it – hooray!

I am not a massive William fan, but I do love a bit of pomp and ceremony!

Harry for King!

I was just saying that I didn’t know a single soul that was into this wedding! Now I see several are! Who knew! The scones look quite lovely and I love the take on clotted cream.

I just got myself the dry blade for the vita mix and it can turn whole oat groats into oat flour in like 30 seconds, it also kneeds bread. Seeing how you love good healthy flours too I thought I’d let ya know how amazing it is.

The whole thing is a horrible distraction. I feel sad when intelligent women get swept up in that princess and royal wedding bullcrap. The elite spend an ungodly amount of taxpayer dollars on themselves, while so many are living in hunger. Not only does the majority allow it, but they find entertainment in it. Wake up people. Please.

Vicki April 28, 2011 at 1:54 pm

I didn’t realise that Americans were so into the Royal Wedding until I started seeing that some of the bloggers I follow were excited for it. I will definitely be watching it and the boyfriend and I will be having a lovely brunch complete with scones.

Seeing as your scones aren’t traditional, I can let it pass that you don’t have a traditional cup of tea either. (It has to have milk!) They do look great though, and what a great idea for vegan clotted cream!

sarah April 28, 2011 at 1:56 pm

My daughter is 7, the same age as I was when Dianna got married so I am going to wake up early and watch with her. Strangely enough, my 10 yr old son is more hyped about it and is going to set his alarm for 4:30 am!
Thanks for the recipe–I just might surprise them and make these and some tea for our breakfast!
I think it’s kinda nice to have something fun to watch on TV for a change, instead of all the bad news, it’s nice to switch gears! Enjoy!

I am in for the tea party! LOL! I am sorry to say that I have been drawn in by the wedding too….I didn’t think I would but it’s actually really interesting! The scones looks fab!

i am trying not to get sucked into the hype. I mean, The Today Show has practically been nonstop Royal Wedding love that I have to change the channel to listen to more important news.

Now that these scones are here though . . . I might have to whip some up and maybe, just maybe check out the gown.

Thank you Angela, now I’m getting suckered in by scones :)

I think I am the only one who didn’t even know they were getting married…I mean, I guess I “knew” but truly tuned it out. If it’s not on blogs, and not on my DVR which is only E Channel and Bravo shows, then I don’t watch it. I get all my important world news from the blogsphere…haha :)

Clotted cream, veganized. You are TOO good!!! When I think clotted cream, I think Ina Garten and vats of boiling cream. Great job on that one! And the scones…yum!

I’m a true british royalist at heart so I love the wedding, Im attending a street party and everything I mean it’s an historic occasion that they will teach in the future, I can say I remember that day.
It’s a family thing I guess because all on my mothers side know everything about the royals and are always in an out of palaces and stately homes – I guess I can blame genetics ^_^ At work we’ve been dressing up in Tiaras and crowns I’m really into they hype.

I’m not sure what you made of the film but I think it looks uber cheesy and its been called the worst royal film ever made and from what I understand it’s a very exaggerated story so Im reluctant to watch it.

First of all, these scones look awesome. Looking at all the pastries and scones at coffee shops leaves me a little sad since I know they are full of dairy. I may have to make these and bring them with me on my next coffee outing.

Second of all, I tried to comment on your Sweet Potato Breakfast Casserole post to tell you how much I loved it, but it was closed for comments. I made a double batch (maybe more with some mods) and ate it every day for 6 days in a row and grieved when I took the last bite. Two more sweet potatoes may be calling my name. My oatmeal skeptic husband even raved over that and your carrot cake one I made awhile back. You may just help me win him over to oats!

Finally, I’ve noticed you have started using more soy in your recipes. Have you had a change of heart toward soy or were you ever actually avoiding it on purpose? I’m just curious what your thoughts are, since it’s one of those controversial products and I’ve struggled with finding my own answer on it. I love your take on most ingredients, so I’m just curious what it is on soy.

Thanks for inspiring me daily!

I was annoyed with all the Royal Wedding talk, then all of a sudden this morning, I couldn’t stop thinking about it and how I’m going to watch it since I work in the morning. If only I hadn’t had a change of heart… lol

These look super yummy. I too have been sucked into the Royal Wedding hoopla! I heard about your website from a friend at work and I have been addicted to your recipes! Thanks for such a great site! My husband is a “meat and potatoes” kind of guy and he gobbles up everything I make from your website…I think he might go Vegan after all!

Way to go on making your scones so healthy!

I have never baked with spelt flour before. This recipe looks like a good one to start with though :) You’re so creative Angela. I love it that you’re not afraid of kitchen failures!!! I wanna be like that when I grow up :) I/m kinda afraid of wasting ingredients I guess, b/c our food budget doesn’t stretch very far.

Moni'sMeals April 28, 2011 at 5:03 pm

bloody brilliant recipe! I have to say, I have not watched any hype, not any! I wanted to- just had no time.
I plan on watching tommorow though.
With some of these of course. wow!

I have not gotten into the Royal Wedding like most people. But if I am able to, I will try to get up at 4:00AM to watch the wedding. I would like to see, the fairytale wedding most girls, like me, dreamed of having.

My mom and one sister got up early in the morn. to watch Princess Diana’s wedding many years ago, and my mom said that she is getting up to watch William & Kate’s.

By the way, the scones look awesome!

I was planning to get up at 5 am tomorrow so I’d have time to shower/do makeup before the wedding at 6 am, but now our building is without both hot water and heat thanks to the crazy wind storm today so there will be no shower for me tomorrow :( Not sure if I’ll still get up that early…I wanted to, because I remember my mom getting me up to watch Charles & Diana’s wedding when I was about 4 years old. We had a tea party in front of the tv and oohed and aahed over her dress. My mom passed away when I was 9 but I think if she was here, we probably would’ve gotten up early and watched this wedding together, so I may still do it. I hope these two have a successful and happy marriage – William has already had enough heartache in his life with losing his mother so young. Enjoy your vegan scones!

Ha! Yeah, I’m a closet Royal Wedding fan myself. I think Kate Middleton has such a sense of style and I’m really anxious to see her wedding dress and how she’ll wear her hair. I’ve been an anglophile for a long time. I remember getting up early to watch Charles and Diana get married, and was so pulled into all of that. I even did an essay at school about all the preparations for their wedding. I’m working the night of the wedding, so I’m hoping I’ll get to watch some of it! We’ll see. I’ll be at your tea party in spirit!

Love is in the air!!!!!

Marit April 29, 2011 at 8:34 am

HAHA…
I was actually sat at work today watching the whole thing with 10 of my co-workers all discussing hats and worrying over Kate’s obviously diminished weight and how that dress was obviously sown or measured when she had bigger breasts coz the dress didn’t sit quite as it should…
But all in all a very moving ceremony and you could see as they gave their vows, that they both just wanted to jump up and down and scream little “yip-yip-yip’s” in exitement….

Loving it… a teeeny bit of real life drama…
