Cheese scones

These Cheese scones work amazingly well with a spicy tomato soup, or just eat warm with butter 😊

See the video on instagram here

Makes 4-5 | Cook:20 mins


225g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting

pinch of salt

pinch of cayenne pepper

1 tsp baking powder

55g chilled butter, cut into cubes

120g mature cheddar, grated

90-100ml milk, plus 1 tbsp for glazing


Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.

Sift the flour, salt, cayenne pepper and baking powder into a bowl, make sure they are well combined.

Chop the butter into small pieces and add to the bowl and combine with your fingertips to make breadcrumbs. Add 100g of the cheese into the breadcrumb mixture and rub together until evenly distributed.

Make a well in the centre of the mixture and pour in enough milk to give a fairly soft but firm dough. Do not pour in all the milk at once as you may not need it all to get the right consistency.

Lightly flour a surface and roll out the dough to approximately 2cm thick. Cut out the scones with a medium (about 8cm) cutter, then put on a sheet of baking parchment, glaze with a little milk and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.

Bake in the oven for 15-20 mins or until golden brown and cooked through.
