Gluten-free scones recipe

What's not to love about a freshly baked scone? This gluten-free version can be made sweet or savoury and makes a dozen.



  • 3 cups gluten-free self-raising flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil


Preheat the oven to 180°C fan-forced. Lightly oil a 33cm round cake tin and set aside.

In a bowl, mix the flour and salt. Gradually add the milk and oil, stirring until all ingredients are combined.

Turn dough out onto a floured surface and lightly knead. Using a knife, divide into 12 scones.

Place all scones touching together in the cake tin and brush tops with a little milk.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until lightly browned.


  • Using a good quality gluten-free flour is essential to this recipe.
  • Add herbs and cheese or sugar to make these muffins savoury or sweet. I served mine with some homemade strawberry jam.
