Gluten-free Bubble and Squeak Scones


Everyone thinks Gluten-free must be try and unappealing to non gluten-free people. Well that’s where we need to start changes our views and opening our minds. Here is a very soft and fluffy gluten-free scone recipe. I had a few things to use up in the fridge so I changed them from a plain scone to a bubble and squeak version. You could add anything you desire to herbs, spinach or rocket even top with cream cheese and sweet chili for a delicious take on these.

You can eat these scones by themselves or with a generous spread of butter. Another vey tasty suggestion is cutting them in half and spreading with basil pesto fresh spinach and avocado. Let you imagination decided.

3 1/2 cups gluten-free self raising flour
2 dessert spoon baking powder
2 1/2 cups of grated cheese tasty, cheedar or Colby or a mixture
1/4 red onion, finely diced
1 corn cob, shucked see pictures for reference
1 cup dice ham or bacon
100gm butter, melted
1 1/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper


  1. Pre-heat oven top 190 degress fan bake.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine self raising flour,baking powder, salt, pepper, 1 1/2 cups grated cheese, corn onion ham and any extras you want to add. Stir to combine well.
  3. Add melted butter and buttermilk, stir and combine.
  4. Line baking tray with baking paper, now to shape your scones this is a wetter mixture than your normal scone dough so I oil my hands first and shape the scones into about a cup size ball.
  5. You should get 7-8 scones depending on how large you make yours, don’t flatten them to much as they will spread with cooking.
  6. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese and bake for 26 minutes until golden and puffy.

Serving: 7-8 large scones

Cool serve with butter, alongside your favorite soup like I did or even spread with pesto and top with fresh spinach and avocado the possibilities are endless. ENJOY
