This scrumptious healthy scone can be made in under 5 minutes in the microwave! It is gluten free and contains no butter, oil or refined sugar!
If someone asked you: “What is typically British?”, your answer would probably be something like: “The Union Jack, the Queen, red buses & phone-boxes, rainy weather, fish & chips, black suits, bowler hats, and tea. Tea and scones.”
It’s true, us Brits do love our cream teas…
Perhaps a little too much…
Scones contain enough gluten and sugar themselves, but we then slather a load of sugary jam and calorific cream on top. In short, scones aren’t the healthiest of things. However, they do taste (and look) delicious!
The 4 of us were about to have some scones for tea this afternoon, but there were only 3 scones in the pack. Well, what can you do? Whip up a single-serving scone. In 2 minutes flat. In the microwave.
Buckwheat flour is one of my favourite flours, as it is gluten free and I find that it produces very similar results to conventional flour.
This scone is whipped up even quicker than the cream, so get the picnic blanket out and enjoy a delicious cream tea – guilt free!
On your scones, do you put jam then cream, or cream and then jam? Devon scones or Cornish scones? Leave your thoughts below…
