I’m always trying to find ways to turn my favourite recipes into a vegan one. I think, that’s my new hobby. This is coming from my grandma’s traditional Hungarian Mini Cheese Scones recipe, known as “Pogacsa”. It’s very popular. Now, I’ve not only changed the ingredients for vegan substitutes but I also made them as a biscuit shape instead of the scone shape. They are still lovely and soft, but baking them a little longer might add some crunchiness to it, if that’s what you like.
I found, that oat milk is probably the best alternative milk. It’s my favourite to drink too and it’s the best for the environment as opposed to almond for example. So I know use oat milk for cooking and baking too. Margarine have always been around as a vegan alternative to butter and to be honest, I’m quite used to it as my grandma always used margarine for baking as it used to be a lot cheaper. The nutritional yeast is somewhat optional, it is to create a more cheese-like tanginess in the flavour.
If you don’t have vegan cheese, just use normal cheese of course and cow’s milk – the same amount, simple.
These biscuits are a big hit in our house, so I literally had to hide some to take the photos – even though this recipe will give. you quite a few biscuits. Store them in a biscuit tin, but they do go dry after a day or two. So I think it’s rather eat on the same day type of snack. (I love them slightly warm. Mmmmm.)
Them make great snacks for lunch bags and perfect for weaning too!
Super simple and easy way to make yummy cheese biscuits.
- 400 g plain flour
- 200 g margarine
- 1 tsp salt
- 120 ml oat milk
- 2.5 tsp dried yeast
- 100 g vegan hard cheese grated
- 2 tsp nutritional yeast
Preheat oven to 170 Celsius. Line a baking sheet with baking paper.
Mix half of the oat milk with the dried yeast, set it aside to let it dissolve.
Combine everything in a mixing bowl and roll it out on a clean, surface previously dusted with some flour. Cut out round shapes.
Place them on the baking sheet, wash the top of the biscuits with a little oat milk and sprinkle with the vegan hard cheese.
Bake them for 15 minutes approximately - keep checking. When they are out, let them cool and enjoy.
