Extra Cheesy Cheese Scones

These are a nice quick and easy scone that you can throw together in a matter of minutes.  They are also child-friendly – from the standpoint that they are nice and easy for a little one to help you make as there is now messy kneading butter into the flour.

INGREDIENTS:

4 1/2 Cups Self-Raising Flour

Pinch of Salt

2 Cups grated Tasty Cheese

300ml Milk

250ml Soda Water

Extra Cheese for the outside (optional)

 

METHOD:

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/390°F Fan Bake or 220°C/425°F conventional.  Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Sift the flour and salt into a bowl.  Stir in the grated cheese.  Make a well in the centre of the bowl.
  3. Pour in the milk and soda water and mix together to make a soft dough.  I generally start by using a wooden spoon and end up with my hands in there!
  4. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface.  Give it a slight knead and pat or roll the dough into your preferred shape.  Most other recipes suggest you make a rectangular shape, but I always roll mine to make a log shape.  Then cut to desired thickness.  I cut mine about an inch thick and can get approx. 12-15 scones.
  5. Place them on your lined baking tray.  Press a little extra cheese into the top of the scone if you choose to do so.  I always choose to do this!
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden.  Serve with butter and/or any other topping you like.  I’m a traditional Kiwi kid, so I like a bit of Marmite on mine.  My husband is a weirdo, he likes an egg salad mix on his.

These scones are lovely, light and fluffy.  I promise you’ll struggle to stop after one!

You can always add a little of your favourite herbs or spices to the dough, back at step 2.
