Gluten Free Raspberry Scones

I don't know how may different scone recipes I've tried that just didn't quite hit the mark BUT I think I've finally found one I like !  I also gave a couple to my Mum to try,  she's not gluten free and pretty fussy and she gave them the thumbs up so here goes;

Ingredients (this makes 6 scones, just double up if you want more);

250gm gluten-free flour

1 tsp gluten-free baking powder

50gm caster sugar

1/2 tsp salt 

Zest of 1 orange

75gm cold butter

75gm frozen raspberries (straight from freezer).  

2 eggs (1 for scone mix , 1 for brushing the scones prior to baking)

150ml milk (I used dairy free milk and it worked really well) 


Heat oven to 180c

Mix all dry ingredients and orange zest in a bowl. Work in the cold butter with your fingertips until you get a mix that resembles breadcrumbs. Add raspberries. 

Combine 1 egg with the milk in a separate bowl,  add to the dry mix and gently combine with a spoon until you have a dough that holds together. 

Turn dough onto a floured board or surface.  Cut out your scones, pop on a baking tray and brush with beaten egg.  Pop in the oven for 18 to 20 mins.  

Serve warm with butter and jam.  Enjoy !
