Perfect for tea and are best eaten on the day they are made.


  • 225g gluten free flour
  • 1 tbsp gluten free baking powder
  • 1⁄2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 50g butter
  • 25g caster sugar
  • 50g natural yogurt
  • 75ml tbsp milk (plus extra for brushing)


Step 1

Place the gluten free flour, gluten free baking powder and xanthan gum into a large bowl. Rub in the fat until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar. Add the yogurt and milk to the bowl to form a soft not sticky dough.

Step 2

Turn out on to a surface lightly dusted with gluten free flour. Knead gently until smooth.

Step 3

Roll out to a thickness of 3–31⁄2cm. Cut into rounds using a 6cm cutter.

Step 4

Place on a greased baking sheet and brush top with a little milk. Bake in pre-heated oven for 12 minutes until golden brown in colour. Transfer to a cooling tray.

Step 5

Serve warm, split in half and spread with butter. Jam and cream make a lovely topping for these and the fruit scones.
