This is a tried and tested simple cheese scone recipe, tastes and looks a good as regular gluten Scones.
250g gluten free SF flour
2tsp baking powder
1tsp of Isabel’s baking fix ( Optional- I think it really helps the texture to be light and airy )
125g cheese a strong Cheddar or mix with Red Leicester
Pre heat oven to a hot 220c.
Put flour, baking powder and baking fix in a bowl add cubed butter.
Rub together with finger tips,
add grated cheese , egg and milk. Mix together with a knife.
The dough will be sticky, handle as little as possible.
Put on floured surface and form into a ball.
Pat down lightly or roll out. I find patting with palm works fine.
Use a cutter to cut out 6 large or 12 small cheese scones. brush just the tops with egg or milk.
Put in hot oven for 10 mins.
After 10 minutes they should be smelling delicious and golden brown. cool on wire rack then enjoy with some butter.
