With my local Greggs still been shut I’ve been really fancying some good ol’ cheese scones, and thought I would try making my own. I got out my trusty Mary Berry Fast cakes book and found the recipe.
8 oz self raising flour
1 level tsp dry mustard
1\4 level tsp salt
good pinch of cayenne pepper ( I used normal pepper)
1 level tsp baking powder
2 oz butter
4 oz grated cheese
1 large egg
Before I started I pre heated my oven to 200 degrees and lightly greased my baking tray. I then added the flour, mustard, pepper and baking powder into a bowl then added in the butter and mixed using my hand until it formed into breadcrumbs. Once it was like that I added in my cheese. Then I cracked my egg into a jug beating it lightly then added in my milk so that it made up to 150ml. I then added this into the flour bowl keeping a little back for glazing. Once this was all combined I began to knead the mixture out onto a lightly floured surfaced and cut using my scone cutters. The recipe makes 10 but I just made 6. I added a little extra cheese onto to make them a little more cheesy and baked them for 10 minutes/until golden brown.
They turned out really well and tasted (if I do say so myself) better than Greggs!. I love eating them when they are a little warm so this made for a lovely afternoon treat. Very easy to make as well. The cheesier the better for me and I LOVE cheese. These are my go to scones!.
What’s your preferred scone cheese or fruit? I’m not a fan of dried fruit so mine is obviously cheese haha.
Thank you for reading hope you’re all staying safe and well. xxx
