Easy gluten free scones

This week is Coeliac awareness week and so I thought I would share a really easy recipe for gluten free scones. It is the perfect weather for scone with jam and clotted cream!

This is a good first recipe if you are new to baking gluten free. I find Doves farm gluten free self raising flour works well.

I don’t add sugar to my scone recipe and to avoid too much sugar you could use a low sugar jam or make your own by simply slowly cooking down your choice of berries, no need for added sugar

Enjoy!

    Finally made some decent Gluten Free, Dairy Free Scones using this recipe from Fabulously Free From. When I’ve attempted scones before they’ve always been dry, hard and flat. These scones are soft and light and make a perfect sugar free treat when paired with No Added Sugar Jam.
