This was fun to try as hubby has egg/nut allergies and we are trying to reduce gluten. I subbed in coconut oil in stead of better then divided the recipe in half pre the sugar so did half sweet (with cinnamon and raisins and half savoury with paprika and chorizo. The sweet ones were better, the savoury a bit biscuit-like. Neither rose much - 5tsp as in heaped or level??? - but still thought it was quite successful.

Fabulous! I'm new to gluten-free baking. First attempt at scones with another recipe was abysmal failure...very grainy, flat & hard. But this recipe was easy to make with my 4yr old, delicious, not grainy, rose beautifully...and fantastic with my homemade jam. As we are also fructose intolerant, we made with dextrose, and served with homemade jam. Just perfect!

I made these just this evening as I am making scones with a year 3 class at school on Monday and one of the children is a celiac. I am really glad that I gave them a test run today as I don't like them at all - the rice flour made them taste grainy. Sorry.

Adjusted this recipe to make cheese scones. Omit sugar, add 1tsp mustard powder, pinch cayenne, 1medium egg. Used 10 fl oz buttermilk instead of yoghurt. The are lovely.

Lovely flavour, light and moist and not crumbly. They hold together brilliantly and no spread during cooking.

Very nice scones and really easy to make. I've never had any success with normal wheat scones so I was really pleased with the result. I used buttermilk for the second batch I made - just as nice but needs a little more flour as the buttermilk isn't as thick as the yoghurt. Lovely with my homemade jam!
