For the jam

500g/1lb 2oz jam sugar

1 lemon, juice only

500g/1lb 2oz strawberries

For the scones

450g/1lb gluten free white flour, plus extra for dusting

5 tsp gluten free baking powder

pinch salt

75g/2¾oz lactose free butter, plus extra for serving

75g/2¾oz caster sugar

2 free-range eggs, lightly beaten plus 2 egg yolks for glazing

135ml/4¼fl oz lactose free milk

400g/14oz lactose free cream

Serves - 4


For the jam, heat the sugar, lemon juice and three tablespoons water in a large pan, slowly, until the sugar has melted. Add the strawberries and stir gently.

Bring the jam up to the boil and cook for 3-4 minutes or up to 10 minutes if you prefer a thicker jam. Remove from the heat, allow to cool slightly, then pour into sterilised jars and allow to cool completely.

Preheat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7. Sift together the gluten free flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl then add the lactose free butter and rub into the flour, creating a fine breadcrumb consistency.

Add the sugar and two eggs, lightly beaten, and mix well. Add the lactose free milk, a little at a time, working with a wooden spoon to form a smooth dough.

Roll on a lightly (GF) floured work surface until 2cm/¾in thick.

Dip a 5cm/2in pastry cutter into the flour then stamp out rounds from the dough, using one sharp tap and not twisting the dough as you cut - twisting the scone mix will result in an uneven rising.

Re-roll the leftover dough and cut out more scones until all the dough has been used.

Flip the scones over and place onto a baking tray. Brush the beaten egg yolks over the top of the scones, taking care not to let any run over the edges.

Place the scones on a greased baking tray and bake in the pre-heated oven for 10-12 minutes until golden-brown.

Allow to cool slightly, then serve while still warm with strawberry jam, lactose free butter and lactose free cream.
