Easy Cheesy gluten free Scones

This is a tried and tested simple cheese scone recipe, tastes and looks a good as regular gluten Scones.

Image

Recipe

60g butter

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 )

1 egg

150ml milk

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.

Image

Rub together with finger tips,

Image

add grated cheese , egg and milk. Mix together with a knife.

Image

Image

The dough will be sticky, handle as little as possible.

Image

Put on floured surface and form into a ball.

Image

Pat down lightly  or roll out. I find patting with palm works fine.

Image

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.

Happy Baking!

Gluten free Cream tea time!

Wimbledon starts today, what better time to make some gluten free scones for an afternoon cream tea!

I started with a clean work surface very important when baking for Coeliacs or gluten sensitive friends and family. Also I pre heated the oven to 220c

recipe-

250g SR Flour gluten free

2 tsp baking powder ( gluten free )

1 tsp Isabels baking fix (optional )

1  large egg

80g butter unsalted

a little milk up to 100ml

Image

I weighed 250g of gluten free S R flour into a mixing bowl. To which I added 2 tsp of GF baking powder, both were from Doves farm . Then I added 1 tsp of Isabels GF baking fix, this is the first time I have added this. It should improve texture and extend shelf life. I then mixed the dry ingredients together.

Image

Next I added 80g of real unsalted butter, chopped and rubbed with fingertips until it resembled breadcrumbs.

Image

Finally I added 1 egg and 100ml of milk. add gradually until it comes together to a ball using a knife. The dough will feel very soft, don’t worry! this is normal and with a little flour on your work surface the scones will be perfect.

Image

I rolled out the dough quite thickly and using a cutter cut out 6 scones and popped on a baking sheet with greaseproof paper cut to size. They look especially good if you egg wash them on top.

Image

The scones went in the hot oven 220c for 10 mins. They should look a lovely golden brown on top .

Image

I cooled them on a wire rack then served with a low sugar jam. I use St Delfour strawberry jam. To top the whole thing off I added thick double cream.

Image

Best eaten the same day, Scones also freeze well.

Perfect for a summers afternoon . whatever the weather!
