  1. Step 1:

    Put a large baking tray in the oven and preheat the oven to 220°C /200°C fan/ gas mark 6.

  2. Step 2:

    Plae, baking powder and xanthan gum into a bowl then rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar.

  3. Step 3:

    Lightly beat the egg and milk in a jug then gradually pour into the flour mixture and stir with a palette knife to form a soft dough.

  4. Step 4:

    Turn the mixture onto a very lightly dusted work surface and shape into a circle with your hands about 4cm thick.

  5. Step 5:

    Using a 6cm round cutter, cut the dough into 8 scones. You may need to reshape the dough.

  6. Step 6:

    Brush the tops of the scones lightly with milk then place on the hot baking tray and bake  for 15 minutes until well risen and golden.

  7. Step 7:

    Transfer the cooked scones onto a wire rack to cool and try serving with jam and clotted cream.
