Gluten free coconut flavoured tea scones

Side-note: Once again I realise that it has been far too long since I have last posted a recipe… this is due to the fact that I have finally completed my post graduate diploma in education and am now a newly qualified primary school teacher! I now get to have a break with summer holidays to enjoy which means you can expect to see lots more recipes (hopefully!)

Fed up of not being able to enjoy a nice scone during afternoon teas at even the poshest of hotels with my girlfriends, I decided to take to the kitchen armed with my mixer and experiment until I discovered the perfect recipe.

The recipe below is one which I initially found on Jamie Oliver’s website and I have added in a couple of tweaks (mainly the coconut flavour!) to make them even more delicious (in my opinion!)

  • 1 cup gluten free plain flour (I used doves farm plain flour)
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour (adds a delicious coco-nutty undertone)
  • 1/4 cup ground almonds
  • a pinch of salt
  • 100ml double cream
  • 125ml milk

Place the various flours, ground almonds and salt into a bowl, leaving a small hole or ‘well’ in the middle of the mixture.

Pour the cream and milk into the middle of the mixture and stir well until it has completely combined.

Now you are supposed to place the dough onto a floured counter, roll out and cut out rounds using a cutter. However, I skipped this step and just spooned the mixture onto a lined baking tray. One tablespoon should equate to one scone, remember to leave enough space between each scone as they do spread whilst baking.

Before placing in the oven brush a little bit of milk over each scone as a glaze using a pastry brush.

Bake at 220 degrees celsius for 10 minutes.

Perfect smothered with lashing of clotted cream and raspberry or strawberry jam and these lovely summer drinks i’ve been trying – enjoy!

With love,
