Cheese Scone Recipe

OK, not the most healthy recipe to start with, but one my nanna taught me. Delicious too. (“The secret’s in the mustard.”) Impressive, hassle-free baking.
The measurements below make about 12 small scones (or about 6 jumbos).


6oz self raising flour
Pinch of salt and pepper
½ teaspoon of mustard
1oz of margarine
3oz cheese (grated)
1 medium egg
2 tablespoons of milk

“I always use more cheese” says my aunt, to make

1. Oven on at 220°, 425F or gas mark 7
2. Grease a baking tray
3. Mix flour, seasoning
4. Rub in margarine
5. Stir in cheese (leave a little bit for tops)
6. Mix to a soft dough with egg and milk
7. Roll out 1/2” thin and cut
8. Put onto a baking tray brush tops with what’s left of your egg/milk mix and sprinkle a little cheese on
9. Put in oven for 10-15 minutes
