Time: 40 mins Serves: 4 individual or one mega monster
4 cups fresh / frozen blueberries or strawberries
¾ cups raw sugar
1 tbsp. lemon juice
½ cup water
½ tsp. each cinnamon and nutmeg (optional)
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 tsps. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
3 tbsp. dairy-free butter
3/4-1 cup soy milk
Preheat oven to 200ºC
What you need to do
In a large skillet add the ingredients for the berry filling, bring to the boil then let simmer for 10-15 minutes until the mixture has thickened.
Meanwhile, combine the dry ingredients for the biscuits. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients with a fork. Keep in the fridge until berries are ready.
When berries have thickened, let them cool while you add soymilk to the dry cookie mixture to form a soft biscuity dough. Don’t over-mix the dough or your biscuits will be tough. The consistency is pretty forgiving. As long as it holds together, but is soft enough to break apart into clumps, you’re good.
Half-full individual ramekins with the berry mixture. Add chunks of the biscuit mixture on top. Sprinkle with sugar and bake for 20 minutes. Serve warm.
