These cheese scones are so quick and easy. They call for only 5 ingredients: flour, salt, butter, cheese and milk. Smother them in butter and enjoy.


Serves: 6 

  • 225g self raising flour
  • pinch salt
  • 60g butter
  • 25g tasty cheese, grated
  • 150ml milk

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Heat the oven to 220 degrees C. Lightly grease a baking tray.
  2. Mix together the flour and salt then rub in the butter.
  3. Stir in the cheese then the milk to get a soft dough.
  4. Turn on to a floured work surface and knead very lightly. Pat out to an oval 2cm thick. Cut into 6 - 8 pieces depending on how large you like your scones then place on the baking sheet. If you prefer you can also use a cutter to stamp out rounds.
  5. Brush the tops of the scones with a little milk. Bake for 12-15 minutes until well risen and golden. Cool on a cooling rack.
