These gluten-free Honey Apple Spice Scones are not very sweet, making them the perfect match for lashings of homemade jam.
100gsweet rice flour
50gcold unsalted buttersliced thinly
1egg+1 for the egg wash
1dessert applepeeled, cored and cubed
Pre-heat oven to 180°C.
Sift the flours with the spices, baking powder and salt, then drop in the butter, rubbing together to form a breadcrumb texture.
In a jug whisk the eggs into the milk with the honey and pour into the flour mixture.
Stir together with a wooden spoon to bring together then turn out onto a clean work surface dusted with oat flour and using your hands gently turn the mixture round and round. As it is coming together sprinkle in the apple pieces bit by bit so they are evenly distributed. Carry on turning the dough a little longer until it forms a smooth dough which is no longer sticky.
Press the dough out into an even round 1 inch thick and cut out the scones using 5cm round cutter.
Place the scones on a large baking tray and brush the top of each scone lightly with whisked egg.
Bake for 10 minutes or until the top of the scones are beautifully golden.
