Stick with the method in this recipe - if you haven't made it before and you're expecting a nice soft scone dough to cut rounds from, it will surprise you! Instead of a soft dough it makes a sticky disc that you smooth with an egg and milk mixture and your fingers, the addition of chia gel turns the mixture into lovely scones with a good flavour.
A gluten-free scone is often dry in the mouth and a bit tasteless, but serve these warm with butter or clotted cream and jam and you'll find people sometimes won't know the difference.
Makes a round of 6 scone triangles.
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 medium egg
4 tbsp milk
60g white rice flour
40g maize flour (not starch)
30g tapioca starch
20g potato starch
1½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp guar gum
1 tbsp caster sugar
1 pinch salt
35g unsalted butter
Pre-heat fan oven to 180℃, cut a square of parchment paper and butter it, have a baking sheet ready.
