Gluten-free Cream Tea.

imageHello all!

So with the long awaited return of that joyful ball of fire in the sky, with it comes an abundance of seasonal goodness and glorious naughty treats! Now, I don’t know about you but when the sunshine first touches my skin at the start of a new summer solstice, I think crisp white shirts, sparkling riverbanks, salads, strawberries and cream and of course bubbly drinks in tall glasses! Gloriously British summers aren’t complete without a cream tea right!? And what can be more enjoyable than making your very own Gluten-free scones to take on a summer pic-nic escapade, so get the cool boxes and wicker hampers at the ready for these little beauties!

 

(makes 14 scones)

ingredients:

2 cups of gluten free plain flour

1 cup of almond meal or ground almond

3 table spoons of baking powder

250ml of milk

120ml of single cream

generous pinch of salt

Method:

start by combining the flour, almond meal,salt and baking soda. Make a well in the middle and pour in the cream and milk combined.mix well until it forms a dough. Lightly flour your work surface and roll out to a thickness of approx 3cm and use a scone/biscuit cutter to cut of desired rounds, brush with a little milk ( you may find the dough a little too wet,for so add more almond meal or flour until you can form a decent dough to roll out) Pre-heat the oven to 200c and bake for approx 10 mins or until risen and slightly golden on top.

You can enjoy warm or wait until cooled. Add a hefty dollop of the best Devon clotted cream! I used http://www.langagefarm.com cream and http://www.bonnemaman.co.uk rasberry conserve as its gluten-free and delicious! It’s up to you what goes first, the Jam or the cream…. Personally, I  prefer one of each!
