April 22nd, 2012 | Lemon, Orange & Cranberry Scones (gluten free)

{ adapted from this recipe. }

As a tea lover scones have been something that I miss the most when it comes to being gluten free. Last week I had a meeting over afternoon tea and decided to try making some gluten free ones. I honestly couldn’t tell the difference and even my dad (who hates all gluten free foods) loved them. In fact, he ate most of them.

Lemon, Orange & Cranberry Scones


• 1 3/4 cups gluten free rice flour
• 1/3 cup sugar
• 2 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
• 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter
• 3/4 cup dried cranberries
• Zest of 1 orange
• Zest of 1/2 lemon
• 2 large eggs
• 1/3 cup cold milk
• 1 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla extract


1. Mix all of the dry ingredients, including the butter, together in a large bowl by hand. It will be very crumbly.

2. In a separate bowl whisk together the wet ingredients.

3. Combine the two together and either roll in to balls about an inch thick or use cookie cutters to cut shapes.

4. Place on a non-stick pan or on a tin-foiled pan and dust with icing sugar, a little bit of cinnamon and brown sugar.

5.Bake for 13-19 minutes or until they are slightly golden at 400F.

And also for all you WordPress & smartphone users out there – go download the app. I’m totally blogging from it on a 1hr bus ride out of town! It’s great :)
