Apple Cinnamon Scones – Gluten Free

Traditionally we make our scones with  buttermilk or regular milk but this recipe uses Greek Yoghurt instead. I was sceptical of course. I thought it would be way too dry and not be able to work into a dough but it worked! The scones were really good.

You can use a caramel drizzle on these if you want to dress them up and they are equally delicious on their own or with a dusting of icing sugar.

Gluten Free Brown Scones

As much as I love a sweet scone, my heart probably lies firmly in the Brown Scone box. I really love a hearty brown scone. I love that I can decide to go with butter, or jam but if I feel like it, I can top with some cheese or whatever may take my fancy that day.

Unfortunately trying to find a gluten free brown scone has been almost impossible and I did try one but it was like eating grain from the miller (without the help of finer processes)!

So one day while I was making some gluten free brown bread, I thought …. this might work so I gave it a go and success! I know I’m going on a bit about it but honestly, I feel I came up with this idea and practically created a gluten free brown scone!

Creamy Strawberry Scones – Gluten Free option included

I’ve tried making scones using fresh strawberries before but ended up with squashed strawberries and a pinkish coloured dough so haven’t gone back to revisit that recipe until now …. I got a punnet of really sweet and delicious Irish strawberries and really wanted to make strawberry scones so off I set to do a little research.

As with a lot of my baking, I also wanted to make a Gluten Free version too so I’ve included both below so everyone can enjoy these amazing scones.

They veer slightly away from ingredients a lot of us would traditionally use for making scones but the result was a really rich and creamy scone with chunks of strawberries throughout so I’m putting this recipe down as a success!

Raspberry Almond Bakewell Squares

I’m such a fan of almond flavours which of course lead into bakewell. Any version of a Bakewell is a winner with me. I absolutely love the flavours but I do understand that sometimes, you don’t want to make the different elements needed for a traditional Bakewell Tart so thanks to Lakeland UK, these gorgeous little Bakewell Squares are a very simple yet delicious way to get that hit.

Cherry & Almond Muffins – Gluten Free

A little while ago I made a Cherry Loaf Cake and it was just so lovely. It’s proven very popular with everyone which always makes me very happy! The recipe is also here on the website if you want to take a look: https://www.cozebakes.com/2020/06/09/cherry-loaf-cake/#more-2831

I kept thinking I would like to make something similar in gluten free form and felt muffins would lend themselves well to the adaption and so these Cherry & Almond Muffins were born.

Sweet Potato Scones with Apple & Cranberry – Gluten & Dairy Free option included

This scone recipe is very simple to put together. If you already have sweet potato mash, then you’re one step ahead. There’s no butter in this recipe, I use oil instead and they are still really light and fluffy. Sweet Potato is a great vegetable, full of nutrition and high in fibre, vitamins and minerals – specially high in Vitamin A.

For those who are on special diets, Sweet Potatoes are a low glycaemic food. So let’s get to the recipe.

Lemon Brownies

There are no preparation pictures for this recipe because it’s just everything in one bowl so nothing very interesting or difficult to see. Don’t you just love an “all in one” bowl recipe? Just so simple and easy to clean up too.

So a bit different from the usual brownie recipe are these Lemon Brownies. You expect to have a light cake when you see them but they are brownies and brownies are more dense than traditional sponge cakes and these have a nice bite to them plus they have a great lemon kick!
