    HM Cheese scones 15th Apr 06 at 7:15 PM
    Have had a quick look through mega index but can;t find a recipie for them.

    After being without the use of an oven for 18months I am making the most of having one.

    I used to make delish cheese scones but can;t find the recipie I used to use.

    I have found a few on websites, but I prefer to ask you lot as I know you guy's are real people - lol

    Thanks in advance

    Rub 2oz of butter into 8oz of self raising flour. Add pinch of salt and 3 oz grated cheddar 9and pinch of mixed herbs if you like). Stir and then add enough milk to bring the mixture to a firm dough. Roll out to about 1.5cm thick and cut into rounds, taking care not to "twist" the cutter or they won't rise properly. Glaze with beaten egg and cook at 210 for 10 - 12 mins until brown.
    I have the mind of a criminal genius. I keep it in the freezer next to Mother....

    Another tip to help any cheesy baked goods, add a teaspoon of dry mustard powder. It helps enrich the cheese flavour

    Made these this am. Used the Be-ro recipie and they are lovely.

    I would reccomend adding a little extra cheese - i'm a cheese monster!! Also as I had no mustard powder, I used Cayenne pepper to give it that extra kick.

    Also I doubled up on the ingredients so that i could deliver some to my friends mum who kindly gave us their old oven (mine broke about 18months ago) and also take some to my mum's for after lunch!

    Just cooking some raspberry and white choc muffins now!

    I use the same recipe as Noozan. When I was without an oven for over a year the things I missed were roasts, roast potatoes, homemade cakes and cheese scones. the first batch tasted the best as I hadn't had any in so long.

    I had half an onion finely chopped to my cheese scones and this makes them extra yummy!

    Oh darn, I should have come here before I made cheese scones last night. Mine didn't rise!!! (or they did, a paltry amount!)

    I twisted the cutter, thinking that would help release the scone from the dough around it. Doh!!!!!!!!

    I will be forced to make another batch without twisting.

    I used Mary Berry's recipe for a cheese scone round, but made individual ones - she says the dough should be 1cm thick for scones, before baking. Sounds to me from this thread as though they should start a little thicker than that - any thoughts?

    (recipe included 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper!! They certainly have kick! If not height).

    Cheese Scones
    OK - I've flicked throught the indexed thread of recipes and can't seem to find a recipe for cheese scones.

    I am pretty crap rubbish at baking. But my Bf keeps reminiscing about how his mum makes the best ever and they are his comfort food - hmmmm.

    Anyway - I thought I'd have a quick go at them if they're easy enough - think I have all the necessary ingredients - flour, butter, milk, cheese and baking soda or bicarb???? Is that it? Just don't know about quantities and baking times/temps.

    I always use the Be-Ro recipe, I have my grandma's copy from donkey's years ago and they have always been the scrummiets!

    I don't use a cutter though, just roll the dough out then cut into strips about 2" wide, then into square-ish lumps and then they rise fine.

    Wholewheat Cheese crusted scones
    Wholewheat Cheese crusted scones this is the same recipe as in the Delia Smith cookery course. Makes excellent scones together with the extra benefits health benefits of using wholegrain flour.

    savoury/cheese scone recipe please
    I have searched & searched & cannot find one.

    I want to make preferably cheese scones, although plain savoury will do.

    Anyone got a recipe.

    I have the usual ingredients. Do not have buttermilk a la Delia!

    Thank you!

    Scones without fancy ingredients
    Makes 16
    Oven 220c

    Sift together
    1 lb self raising flour
    1/2 tsp salt
    2 tsp baking powder

    Rub in
    4 oz butter


    4oz grated cheese

    Stir in gradually (don't add it all at once !)

    1/2 pint of milk - you probably won't need all of it which is why you need to add it gradually you can use half milk and half yogurt.

    When you have a soft dough that isn't too sticky roll it out about 1 inch thick. Cut into 2 1/2 inch rounds.Brush with milk if you like.

    Bake on lined trays for 10-12 mins

    Eat immediately

    Cheese Scone Recipie
    Try this one, I made them last week they were lovely
  • growingafamily
    Cheese scones - please help
    I have signed up to make some cheese scones for Church on Sunday
    I have never made any type of scone before but have found a suitable sounding recipe in my bero book (thanks to my mum).
    What I want to know is can I cook them in advance and freeze them ?? If so how would I go about doing so ?? They need to seem nice and freshly made on Sunday - or would it be best to do them the night before ??

    Any other tips and hints greatfully received
  • Bambam
    Scones freeze and defrost really well. I usually do some for the freezer because they are relatively quick and easy to make. Could someone please let me know if you can freeze the scones uncooked as well?

    Can I please pass on a tip i read about sometime ago? When using your round scone cutter don't twist as you press down. The twisting causes the scone to rise unevenly.
    It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.
