How make savoury cheesy scones


This is a savoury scone which gets a slight flavour kick from mustard and cayenne pepper. They are delicious on their own, buttered or with leftover roasted meats and salad.

Step One

Ingredients: Serves: 8. 200g/7 oz self raising flour. 1/4 tsp salt. 1/2 tsp mustard powder. 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper. 40g/1 1/2 oz butter. 60g/2 oz grated strong Cheddar cheese. 100ml (3 1/2 fl oz) milk.

Step Two

Heat oven to 220 degrees C / gas mark 7 and lightly grease a baking tray.

Step Three

Sift flour, mustard powder, cayenne pepper and salt into a mixing bowl. Cut the butter into small pieces and add to flour.

Step Four

Rub the butter into the flour with fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in grated cheese.

Step Five

Add the milk gradually, stirring well with a knife until the mixture begins to stick together.

Step Six

With your hands, knead the mixture gently to form a soft smooth dough.

Step Seven

On a floured surface flatten or roll the dough to about 3cm thick round.

Step Eight

Use a 5cm round cutter to cut out individual scones.

Step Nine

Place scones on the greased baking tray. Brush with milk and sprinkle some extra cheese on top.

Step Ten

Cook for about 10-15 mins until golden. Cool slightly before serving.
