Scone Recipe Help

5 posts in this topic

I made some scones this afternoon, and while they are tasty, they are really chewy. The flours are 1 cup white rice, 2/3 cup potato starch, 2/3 cup tapioca, and 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum. It also has eggs, sugar, vegan butter substitute, yogurt and salt. Does anyone have any insight into why they are so chewy and how I could fix it for next time?

I would look for another recipe. That is entirely too much potato starch and tapioca, in my opinion. Someone has posted the ratio for flour to starch on this forum. Maybe do a forum search to pull it up. I think glutenfree girl has something on her blog, as well. Good luck.

In Carol Fensters book called "Quick and Easy", she has a great recipe for scones on page 204, not 203. I leave out the raisins and put mini chocolate chips in the batter then brush the top of batter with milk and sprinkle on sugar. After baking they are wonderful with a spoonful of whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup. The recipe calls for sorghum flour and cream of tartar.

Thank you so much for the advice!

 

My first instinct was the same as yours, freeatlast, but it's my boss's recipe, so I only get so much wiggle room! Fortunately, he doesn't mind me tweaking the recipe. I will need to look more at glutenfreegirl's site. Thank you for that!

 

I ended up using your flour, auzzi, and they turned out much better. Thank you!

 

and purple, thank you for the recipe suggestion! I won't use it in this particular case, but I will probably give it a shot at home. I feel like I am learning to bake all over again, which is both fun and a bit frusratingand good suggestions on recipes is much appreciated.

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
