Buttermilk Scones

Buttermilk Scones

Makes 8

Ingredients

  • 450g gluten free self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1tbsp baking powder
  • 2tsp xanthan gum
  • 85g golden caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 100g butter, diced
  • 280ml buttermilk
  • 100ml milk, plus extra for brushing
  • clotted cream and jam, to serve

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 430ยฐF (220ยฐC/200ยฐC fan/gas mark 7).
  • Pour the flour into a large bowl, and stir in baking powder, xanthan gum, sugar and 1/2 tsp salt.
  • Rub the butter into the flour mixture with your hands until it is completely combined. 
  • In a separate bowl, mix the buttermilk and milk together, then add to the flour mixture. Stir together until it forms a soft dough.
  • Place dough onto a lightly floured work surface and pat out with your hands until about 4cm thick. DO NOT knead the mixture as this will make a heavy scone. 
  • If the mixture seems a little too moist, leave to sit for a few minutes.
  • Using a floured cutter, cut out rounds. Then place on a baking tray, spaced apart. 
  • Brush the tops with milk, sprinkle with sugar and bake for 10-12 minutes until golden. 
  • Serve with clotted cream and jam.
