Cheese Scones - Gluten Free

We love cheese scones and I hadn't yet attempted any with GF flour exchanged for my normal flour to see if they would work. Luckily, I have now found this wonderful site here
which is a UK blog. We used her recipe to make these, which can be found here.

I didn't have any sour cream so used creme fraiche and added 1/2 tsp lemon juice to the liquid element - seemed to work but they may have risen further with the sour cream.

Herewith the pictures:

They expanded sideways and a little in height, although you wouldn't think so from these pictures. Anyway, we cut one in half within a few minutes of being out the oven to check its texture:
As you can see, nice, light and fluffy, about as close to normal as you can get. They taste about the same as normal ones (we ate the bottom bit first to check) and as per usual, the top cheesy bit was better still.

The next day, in the same way that normal scones dry out, they were slightly dry but a quick microwave re-steamed them. The final few were eaten the day after, again, microwaved, just as good as the first so.


  1. You are a star. Firstly you make lots of gluten free recipes and share your tips, secondly you've introduced me to a new gluten free blog today. Thank you once again! Normally I don't cook cakes, pastries etc for myself and as I find all shop bought GF cakes and biscuits very, very sweet I eat very few. I will be rather fat if I make many of your recipes!

    1. I have enjoyed the challenge! Think some must be fed up hearing about GF! There are certainly some good and bad recipes out there:)
