  • Yield: 12
  • Preparation Time: 20 Minutes


  • 9 oz (260 g) gluten-free plain flour mix, plus extra for dusting
  • 2 tbsp cornflour
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp gluten-free baking powder
  • ¾ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp xanthan gum
  • 4 oz (120 g) unsalted butter, chilled, cubed
  • 6 fl oz (180 ml) buttermilk, plus extra as needed

How to Make It
  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/Gas Mark 5. Grease and line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  2. Combine the flour mix, cornflour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt and xanthan gum in a large mixing bowl. Stir briefly to mix.
  3. Add the butter and rub into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles rough breadcrumbs. Add the buttermilk and mix until a rough, clumpy dough forms; add more buttermilk as needed if it's too dry.
  4. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly. Roll out to approximately 1 cm (½in) thick and cut out 5 cm (2 in) wide rounds of dough using a round cookie cutter.
  5. Lift the dough rounds onto the baking tray and space them apart. Bake for about 15-18 minutes until golden-brown on top.
  6. Remove from the oven and let cool on the tray for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  7. Serve warm or at room temperature with butter and blackcurrant jam.
