Gluten-Free Cream Tea for Coeliac Awareness Week

Submitted by on May 9, 2013 – 12:14 pmNo Comment

From 13th–19th May it’s Coeliac Awareness Week. Coeliac (pronounced see-liac) disease is often misunderstood; it’s not form of food intolerance but an autoimmune disease, where the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues. This immune reaction is triggered by gluten, a collective name for a type of protein found in the cereals wheat, rye and barley. A few people are also sensitive to oats.

To highlight Coeliac Awareness Week and (hopefully!) the start of summer here’s a tempting idea for a gluten-free cream tea. The highlight of this indulgent spread is the gluten-free and very tasty Sconeybun – a scone/bun hybrid creation from the lovely people at Honeybuns. Now everyone can enjoy a proper British cream tea. Gluten? Who needs it?!

Honeybuns Sconeybun XL368

The Honeybuns team are well known for their innovative products, their gorgeous Sconeybun is half bun and half scone, and completely gluten and dairy-free too. With just a hint of vanilla, they’re heavenly loaded with jam and cream, but are also tasty enough to eat by themselves. We sell these buns frozen so you can keep them in the freezer until needed, and they have three days shelf life once defrosted.

Traidcraft Strawberry Jam GH166

Organic, fair-trade and gluten free, this jam is made from 40% organic strawberries and Fairtrade sugar from Paraguay. Indulgence with a conscience!

Devon Cream Company Clotted Cream CV336

For those who prefer butter on their scones, try the slightly salted version from Welsh organic farming cooperative Calon Wen

Hampstead Darjeeling TE248

A really good cream tea needs a really good cuppa. This Darjeeling from Hampstead makes a perfect afternoon brew as well as being gluten-free, organic and
