Author Vicki Montague - the Free From Fairy


  • 230 g Free From Fairy self-raising flour OR 230g FFF plain flour plus 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp psyllium powder or xanthan gum
  • 20 g coconut sugar I used the ginger one from Coconut Merchant plus extra for sprinkling
  • 75 g butter cubed (I used goats)
  • 70 g plain full fat yoghurt I used goats
  • 70 g full fat milk I used goats plus extra for rubbing on top


  1. Turn your oven on to 220 degrees/200 degree fan/ gas mark 6 and place a large baking tray inside to heat up
  2. Place the dry ingredients into a food processor and blend until well mixed. Alternatively place in a large bowl and mix well by hand
  3. Add the butter into the dry ingredients and either blend until the mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs, or rub the butter into the flour by hand
  4. Add the yoghurt and milk and combine into a dough that just holds together
  5. Flour a clean dry work surface and empty the dough onto it
  6. Knead until you have a rough ball then press out with your hand until around 2cm thick
  7. Using a floured straight edged circular 7cm diameter cutter, cut out your scones. You should get four before bringing the dough back together to make another, then repeating with the final piece of dough
  8. Rub the tops of the scones with milk and sprinkle with a little sugar if you desire
  9. Carefully remove the hot baking tray from the oven and quickly place the scones onto it
  10. Bake the scones for around 15 minutes until golden on top
  11. Allow to cool for around 5 minutes (or fully) before cutting
  12. Eat on the day of baking or freeze and re-heat in the microwave
