Gluten-Free/casein-Free Scones - Need Help

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've gone strict dairy free and I'm having a bit of trouble baking my occasional grain treats. I modified my gluten-free scones recipe and the scones had a great flavor but they were kind of dry and crumbly compared to making them with butter. Can someone suggest how to make these a bit less dry?

1 c brown rice flour

1 c oat flour

2 T Sucanat dried cane juice

1 1/2 t baking soda

1 t guar gum (avoiding xanthan gum)

1/3 c coconut oil (subbed for butter)

1 egg

1/2 c coconut milk (sub for milk)

Let batter rest to absorb liquid, make into scones, put on greased sheet, bake 400F for 15-20 min.

Thanks!

My first try would be to add one or two tablespoons of applesauce and switch to palm oil shortening instead of coconut oil.

Drink a cup of coffee with them?

More oil? They say butter goes further in gluten-free, I don't know if the same is true with coconut.

I love using coconut oil but don't know a thing about using it as a sub.

Thanks everyone! I did have coffee with them. :lol:

I'll see if I can find some palm oil shortening because that sounds like it would be the closest sub or butter. I have some applesauce in the pantry so I can try adding a little. I'd hate to switch from sucanat to honey as much as I love honey. I've never tried baking with sucanat before and I loved the flavor. Even better, it didn't dissolve completely so the scones were beautifully flecked with little bits of brown sucanat.

Maybe add just a touch more of coconut oil? I've subbed coconut oil in a lot of recipes and haven't had a problem with it being dry but I was always subbing for other oils, not butter. But you could also try grapeseed oil. My other thought is that coconut milk is much thicker than regular milk so you might be getting less liquid there. You could add a little more coconut milk or sub almond milk or rice milk which might be closer to regular.

Youu can just add the honey- one or two tablespoons. That's a really good idea, honey gives a moister crumb and holds things together.

    • We have also noticed wait staff carrying glasses or coffee cups 3 or 4 at the time by putting a finger down inside each one & then grasping them altogether. This just after picking up dirty dishes from other tables. Certainly weren't back in the kitchen long enough to wash their hands before grabbing the glasses or cups. We used to, before celiac, try to shrug it off as a few germs won't hurt you & you need to be exposed to things once in a while in order to strengthen your immune system. It always still grossed us out though! Now is a whole other matter. Gluten fingers inside glasses & cups. No, just no!
    • Looks like Cycles beat me to it.  I was going to say use cardboard and frost it, add candies etc.  that's the fun part anyway.  
    • I found out how to make gluten free/grain free protein based gram crackers awhile back, and I cut them to shape before baking them. Tech you could use this method to preshape/make the sides and roof then stick it together with a icing. Alternatively you can try making one with gluten free gramcrackers from the store and icing. The powder I used has that deep nutty flavor, expensive at $49 for 2.5lbs or $79 for 5lb but you can make alot more then one house with it and gramcrackers I make with it are healthy protein treats low on carbs, >.< bit of a acquired taste but I love them. 2/3 (75g) Cup Sancha Inchi Protein https://julianbakery.com/…/pegan-protein-powder-sacha-inch…/ 
      1 tbsp chia seeds
      1-2tsp cinnamon
      2tsp Erythritol/sugar of choice
      1/4tsp pure monk fruit or uncut stevia
      1/2 cup warm water
      2tbsp coconut oil 1. Preheat oven to 375F with a Pizza stone or baking sheet in it.
      2. Prepare a sheet of foil with a bit of oil on it
      3. Whisk your dry ingredients til well incorporated, then add in your liquid and whisk well. then transition to a spatula to fold the dough a bit and dump onto the foil sheet.
      4. Using wax paper over the top flatten out the dough into a even sheet, then thinner the crisper, thicker you get chewier. Then using the spatula or dough knife (nothing sharp) Make lines cutting the sheet into 1.5-2" squares. Or shapes/sizes of choice
      5. Place the foil on top of the pizza stone/sheet in the oven and bake for about 20mins then turn off the oven open to check on it then shut it again and leave it in their to crisp up for 20-45mins.
    • I used to take sinutab for my sinus issues. 
    • If you think the cause if your headache is allergies, consider taking an antihistamine.  Try to solve the root cause instead of just relieving the symptom.
