On Friday 24 June, crack open the strawberry jam, whip up some soya cream and get your mixing bowl ready for National Cream Tea Day 2022

You don't have to miss out on some yummy scones just because you don't consume dairy. This year we've got a fantastic recipe to share with you for vegan fruit scones.
