I love using chestnut flour in cakes for its naturally sweet flavour, meaning very little sugar is added to the cake.

Shipton Mill flours inspire me every time I bake. I always order a selection of different flours and can highly recommend my 3 flour blend. These scones are so delicious, my partner has requested them at least once a week. That's really saying something, because I bake scones once in the blue moon! The colour is a beautiful golden/sandy colour which is from the Khorasan flour. The smell is divine and the flavour is really out of this world. I use raw (unpasteurised) butter, raw cream and milk. If you can't buy raw, use the best butter and cream you can buy. These first class ingredients take the familiar English scone into a different stratosphere. The 3 flours are, Chestnut, Khorasan and Type 45. You can use any white flour, but preferably a fine/light flour. I just happened to have an opened bag of Type 45 which needed using up. The recipe is my adaptation of a Richard Bertinet recipe. In our house, these scones have been elevated to breakfast! I hope you give it a go.
Savoury cakes perfect for packed lunches with the gold seal of approval from my 7 year old.

1st Attempt! Wanted to find a way of using chestnut flour and rice flour other than in bread. Just made these this morning and I am quite pleased with the taste. The amount of sugar could be altered as i dont like things too sweet. I woulsd sugestmore if you have a sweet tooth !! I felt they had a lovely taste but were a bit dry. Next time I shall try adding some fruit and also plan to try coco powder as well, watch this space.
