Cara’s All-Purpose Blend

  • 2 cups Brown Rice Flour
  • ¾ teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar


  • 5 tablespoons dairy-free butter - cold and cubed
  • 1 cup light coconut milk - canned
  • 2 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1 cup dried cranberries


  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoon cornstarch


  • 1 cup powdered sugar - organic
  • 2 teaspoons orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest


  • Preheat oven to 425°F/220°C.
  • Whisk the flour, xanthan, baking powder, salt and sugar together.
  • With a pastry blender, add the butter into the flour mix until crumbly.
  • Stir in milk. Before you completely combine the dough together, add the zest and cranberries. Mix until flour is completely combined.
  • Gently pat dough into a circle (approximately 8–inch/20-cm diameter).
  • Slice the scones into 6 pieces and place on a greased baking sheet. I didn't catch this step for some reason and I actually just partially cut though the round for 6 scones and ended up cutting them all the way through after baking. It worked fine.
  • Coat a thin layer of the “egg” wash by whisking the water and cornstarch together, and then brushing onto the dough with a brush.
  • Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until light brown.
  • Allow cooling on a baking rack for 10 minutes.
  • Coat the tops of the scones with the sugar glaze.

To make the Glaze

  • Combine all ingredients to make a paste thick enough to stir but not too runny.
