Gluten Free Scones

For a reliable gluten free scones recipe look no further as we have found it!

If you use dairy free or even soya free milk in this recipe then you can make gluten free AND dairy free scones. Using Stork margarine is naturally dairy free too so it really is that easy to make these suitable for a range of dietary requirements.

In fact, the scones you see in the images were made using Koko milk which is dairy and soya free as it is made using coconuts (but you can’t taste the coconut so it tastes great in tea too!).

We can’t stake the claim to this recipe – it was introduced to me via a Facebook group and actually comes from the grandmother of one of the members. You can’t go wrong with a grandmother’s recipe, and she certainly proved me right – these were delicious.

They took about the 12 minutes in the oven but came out perfectly, with a crisp and golden outside yet soft and fluffy inside. The key to making these gluten free scones is to get that dough the right consistency – take your time adding the milk bit by bit as you don’t want to end up with a sticky dough! Also, try not to knead the dough as such because we don’t want to overwork the mixture.

Another important to point to note is that if you make these too small then you’ll end up with gluten free scone biscuits! Your best bet is to use a proper cake cutter that is as tall as the height you roll the dough out to (about 1.5 inches is ideal).

Please let me know how you get on with this gluten free scones recipe in the comments below. Otherwise, just enjoy with some thick clotted cream and your choice of jam.

Gluten Free Scones
Instructions
  1. Weigh out the flour into a large mixing bowl, then rub the margarine into the flour until you have breadcrumbs.
  2. Now add in to the mix the Xanthan gum, baking powder, and sugar - give it a good mix.
  3. Make a well in the centre of the mix and then add ONE beaten egg plus about a THIRD of the milk. Slowly fold the mix into the wet ingredients until you get a soft dough - add more milk as required (you might not need all of it).
  4. Stick your oven on to gas mark 7 or 220°C - we want it really nice and hot! Place a tray in the oven with baking parchment on to get this hot too.
  5. Dust some flour on your surface and your rolling pin, and then roll the dough out to about 1.5" thick - too thin and you'll get biscuits! Cut out using a scone-sized cutter (or you can use a mug/glass).
  6. Take your baking tray out of the oven (it will be hot so be careful!) and place your scones on it. Then, take the second beaten egg and give them all a good glaze.
  7. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes, until golden and crispy. When done, take them out to sit on a wire rack. Then, enjoy with some delicious clotted cream and fruity jam.
