  • Either 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper or 1 teaspoon mixed mustard (blend with the milk)
This is my grandmother’s recipe for cheese scones which I have tried this past weekend and they were easy and delicious!

Requirements (for mobile viewers)

  • 1 cup of self raising flour
  • 1 cup of grated cheddar cheese ( cheese can be as strong as you like)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Either 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper or 1 teaspoon mixed mustard (blend with the milk)
  • Milk to mix (usually around a cup of milk)

Method

  1. Mix flour, cheese, salt and pepper
  2. Add sufficient milk to make a soft dough but not enough to make it sticky
  3. Pat out with hands on a floured board. ( I never roll the dough) to about 1inch thick. Cut out with biscuit cutter and bake until scones appear cooked ( goldybrown colour) for about ten plus minutes in a very hot oven. I use Gas mark 8 (230 degrees Celsius/450F).

Good luck. Change anything as it seems best to you as you try out the above.
