Gluten Free Afternoon Tea With Udi's

Gluten Free afternoon tea

I am pleased to say that none of my family are gluten intolerant. However, my boys have friends that are. I therefore agreed to test out some products from Udi's. They have a range of biscuits, breads, crisps and cake mixes. They really are worth knowing about if you have a gluten free diet or know someone that does.

We started our afternoon tea with finger sandwiches. The bread was much dryer than regular bread. Having spoken to a friend who is gluten intolerant this is pretty standard. Personally I preferred the white bread to the multiseed.

We then tried the gluten free cupcakes and wafers. I had made the cupcakes myself using a sponge cake mix. They were simple to make and tasted nice. The lemon wafers were lovely and definitely worth buying.

You can't have an afternoon tea without tea and scones. These were lovely and I used a recipe provided by Udi's to make these. They are whiter than I was expecting but they tasted just as good as any other scone I have eaten.

To make them you will need:

300g Udi's Gluten Free All-Purpose Flour mix 
1tsp baking powder
75g butter 
A pinch of salt
175ml warned milk 
2 tablespoons of caster sugar 
1 egg 

Pre heat your oven to 200C
In a large bowl mix the flour, baking powder, salt and butter
Rub until it resembles bread crumbs
Add the sugar and warmed milk
Knead the dough until smooth
Cut out the scones with a cookie cutter
Brush with egg
Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve with cream, jam and a nice cuppa!

Do you know anyone that these gluten free products would be good for?
We were sent the products for the purpose of the post but the opinions are my own. You can find more gluten free recipes here.
