Indulge in these gluten-free currant scones for Sunday brunch or anytime snack. The recipe comes together fast and easy, making it perfect for everyday baking.

I used currants in this recipe, but you can use raisins or dried fruit of your choice. The best way to serve gluten-free scones is when they are slightly warm. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp. Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 Tbsp. Coconut sugar, plus some for topping
  • 1 tsp. GF baking powder (preferably aluminum free)
  • 1/4 tsp. pure fine sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. xanthan gum (omit if the flour blend includes xanthan gum)
  • 1/4 cup cold butter (1/2 stick)
  • 1/2 cup dried currants
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Tbsp. Cold milk
  • 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

      The recipe instructions are off. It doesn’t include the egg nor the vanilla extract additions, and I believe that 1 tablespoon of the cold milk should be used in the batter. The instructions need to be corrected.

        Hi Harmand, thank you for pointing this out. Somehow one of the lines in the instructions was deleted. We have corrected it
