Gluten-Free Scones

I love a good scone! They need a nice crumb that crumbles a little as you bite and what makes it even better … they’re gluten free!



Prep time

Cook time



  • 450g gluten-free flour
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 100g very cold butter, cut into small cubes
  • 300mL milk, plus a little extra to brush tops
  • ½ cup lightly whipped cream, to serve
  • 2 tbsp butter, to serve
  • ¼ cup jam, to serve


  • Preheat oven to 220°C.
  • Place flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl, add butter cubes and rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips until it resembles wet sand.
  • Make a well in the centre and pour in milk. Use a fork to bring the flour into the milk.
  • Once it comes together, tip onto a floured surface and gently press into a disc about 3cm thick.
  • Flour a scone cutter and cut rounds from the dough. Place on a tray lined with baking paper.
  • Gently reform the remaining dough and continue cutting out rounds.
  • Brush the tops with milk and bake for about 20-25 mins or until golden brown.
  • Serve with lightly whipped cream, butter and your favourite jam.
  • Tip: Don’t overwork these scones or they will become tough. Handle the dough as little as possible.
