A Twist on The Best Cheese Scones Ever - Perfect for Lunch
I have just made, the tastiest scones, using the recipe that I have posted before.
Thanks once again, to my friend Elpie, for giving me this recipe
It is worth a re-post
So so easy and quick. Perfect for lunch.
I added red capsicum and spring onions both finely chopped for some extra flavour
This recipe makes 4 scones. I like to make the dough fairly wet.
Like bread scones really don't their dough being too dry.
Heat oven to 220C
While the oven is heating up
Sift together into a bowl
1 cup plain flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
Good pinch salt
Add 1/2 tablespoon sugar
1 cup grated cheese, I used Mozzarella this time
1/2 red capsicum finely chopped
1 spring onion finely chopped
Grind black pepper
1/2 cup milk
With your fingers mix all of the dry ingredients together
Mix with a knife till just blended
If the mixture is too dry add a little more milk
This should be the right amount (depends on the weather, flour etc)
Turn out onto a board and knead two or three times,
just to make sure they are well blended
Pat with floured hands onto a baking sheet lined with baking paper
Cut into 4 pieces
Bake in pre-heated oven for 8 minutes
turn the tray around and bake for about 3 more minutes
