The Perfect Scone?

Another Scone Recipe, probably the best.

Well I won't be trying any further variations on scones in any case.

I know I'm kinda obsessing on scones, but Conor loves them! These scone are light and fluffy. Perfect toasted with jam. The secret ingredient is carrot!


  • 2 cups of GF/CF flour mix (see below)
  • 2 tsp Xantan gum
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup or 2 ozs Margarine (I used Stork)
  • 1/4 cup veg oil
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • A few tbsp of CF milk for glazing (I use hemp milk, but any should do)
  • 1 carrot finely grated or juiced
  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees centigrade
  • Mix all the dry ingredients
  • Beat the egg
  • Add oil and marg and work until the mix resembles breadcrumbs
  • Mix in the egg and carrot (or carrot juice)
  • Work into a smooth dough
  • Knead the dough until all the carrot is mixed through evenly
  • Roll out dough on floured board until it's about 3/4 to 1 inch thick
  • Cut out and transfer to a floured baking sheet
  • Mix the milk with any left over egg and brush the top of each scone
  • Bake for 12 minutes until golden brown on top

GF/CF Flour Mix
  • 4 Cups Rice Flour
  • 1 Cup Potato Flour
  • 1 Cup Tapioca Flour
These are great split and topped with jam.

Enjoy! Stumble Delicious
