We’re gonna get you more flour! (Watch this space!)

But meantime, with what you have in the cupboard, MAKE THESE!

*I halved this recipe to make 3, because a) I had just the 3 hungry-for-morning-tea littlies & I’m a coeliac = 3 was enough; b) I only had enough flour in the cupboard to make this amount. Lucky!

BUT, they are best eaten on the day, straight out of the oven, and it’s not like we don’t have a bit of time on our hands now to make these daily. 

PLEASE feel free to add any old thing you like to the mix (feta, herbs, dates, finely chopped red onion, leftover roasted veg, etc, etc). Also – I happened to randomly have buttermilk – you can swap this out with regular milk. 

Flour your board to knead dough, add liquid/flour as required. Can also brush top with milk or eggwash. Whatever works – these are delicious either way.

Alright this photo isn’t the best – but they’re truly very good!

Deeelicious easy cheese scones:

makes 6

3 cups self raising flour (or plain flour; just add an extra tsp baking powder)

1 tsp baking powder (see above)

1 tsp salt (add pepper too, if your devourees won’t mind the ‘black bits’ – mine do!)

80g butter, grated

360ml buttermilk (see note above)

80g Parmesan cheese, grated

80g tasty cheese, grated (if no Parmesan, just use 160g tasty cheese. If no tasty cheese, just use any old hard cheese!)


Put dry ingredients into a bowl. Fork through to remove any lumps.

Add grated butter (cold butter easiest to grate). Rub in with your fingers til mixture resembles fine-ish crumb. 

Add grated cheese (save a bit to sprinkle over before putting into oven). Mix through.

Add buttermilk/milk.

Turn out onto a floured board & knead a little til mixture comes together. Shape any way you like (we love scones to be thick-ish, so don’t press too thin – unless you like thin scones!).

Either separate out & place on lined baking tray, or lump together (recommend you make cut marks through before baking so scones separate easily once out of the oven).

Sprinkle any excess grated cheese over the top. Brush with milk or egg wash if you like.

Place into preheated (200deg) oven for 10-12 mins. 

Take out, pop onto wire rack til just cool enough to devour. Serve with loads of butter. Also jam, more cheese, whatever you like. 

Let me know if you love them as much as mine do!
