Ingredients

225g PURE GF Bakery Blend (Ex Blended Flour)
25g sugar
60g butter/hard margarine
125ml milk (any variety)

1 tsp PURE Baking Powder
½tsp PURE Xanthan Gum
½tsp salt


Preparation Method

  1. Weigh the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder and Xanthan gum in to a bowl and mix thoroughly with a whisk.
  2. Add the butter and rub it in to the flour mixture until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  3. Pour in the milk and bring the mixture together to form a dough.
  4. Turn the dough onto a floured surface (a sprinkling of the plain flour or just some rice flour will be fine) and lightly roll it until it is around 2cm thick. Use a round pastry cutter (straight or fluted) to cut individual circles. (You can shape the scones by hand of your prefer)
  5. Place the scones onto a piece of greaseproof paper on a baking tray. You can glaze the top with either milk or some beaten egg at this stage to help them brown.
  6. Bake at 220°C/425°F until golden in colour. Cool on a wire rack and then slice and fill as required. Once cool they can be stored in an airtight container.
