85g diced lactose free butter
350g gluten free self-raising flour
¼ tsp salt
1½ tsp gluten free bicarbonate of soda
4 tbsp caster sugar
200ml lactose free milk, warmed to room temperature, plus a splash extra
crushed sugar cubes, to decorate
Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Whizz lactose free butter into gluten free flour.
Tip into a bowl and stir in salt with bicarbonate of soda and sugar. Using a cutlery knife, quickly stir in lactose free milk and egg – don’t over-mix.
Tip out onto a lightly floured (gluten free) surface and turn over a couple of times to very gently bring together with your hands.
Gently pat to about 1in thick, then stamp out rounds with a floured cutter.
Pat together trimmings to stamp out more. Brush the tops with a splash more lactose free milk, then scatter with crushed sugar cubes.
Bake on a baking sheet for 10-12 mins until risen and golden.
