Mum's Cheese Scones
A quick and easy cheese scone just like my mum used to make!
Servings: 6 large or 12 small
- 225 grams self-raising flour (1 and 3/4 cups)
- 56 grams butter (1/2 stick)
- 75 grams mature cheddar cheese - grated (1/2 cup)
- dash milk
Pre heat your oven to 350F / 180C / Gas mark 4
Mix the flour and butter together till it resembles breadcrumbs.
Add grated cheese to taste. I like my scones very cheesy so I add a couple of handfuls of extra mature cheddar, but if you prefer a milder flavour then that’s fine, just a good handful of mild cheddar will do.
Then add a dash of milk and keep adding a small dash at a time until the mix comes together and forms a ball.
Roll the dough out on a well-floured surface.
Depending on if you are making large or small scones will depend on how thick you roll out the dough.
– 2 centimetres thick for 12 small and 3 – 4 centimetres thick for 6 large. I always like the large ones.
Place them on a baking try covered with parchment paper and pop them in the oven on a middle shelf for 10 to 12 minutes for the small scones and 15 – 17 for the large scones. Once ready they will be a light golden brown. And will sound hollow if tapped on the bottom.
Place them on a cooling rack to cool right down.
Serve simply with butter.
