Gluten-free Scones


120g Shipton Mill All-Purpose Gluten Free Flour
30g ground almonds
1½ tsps gf baking powder
1 tbsp caster sugar
1 pinch salt
½ tsp xanthan gum
35g unsalted, cold butter
1 medium egg, beaten
3-4 tbsp cold milk


1. Pre-heat fan oven to 180˚C.
2. Prepare a baking sheet with buttered parchment paper.
3. Weigh all dry ingredients into a bowl or food processor.
4. Cut the butter into cubes and rub into flour with fingertips, or pulse in processor.

5. Add the beaten egg and the milk and mix to a paste with a spatula or pulse to a wet paste.

6. Turn the paste onto the prepared parchment and using your hands and milk to smooth, shape it into a round disc approx 12cm diameter, so that all the creases disappear.

7. Cut in half, and cut each half into 3, pulling the triangles slightly apart, slide the scone round on its parchment onto the baking sheet, and bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until brown and well risen.

8. Remove from oven, and gently break apart and cool on a wire rack. Serve with clotted cream and jam.

Once you get used to this flour mix and method - much wetter than conventional flour - you'll be delighted with the result every time! Double or triple the quantities for more scones, left-overs can be re-heated and eaten warm the next day.
