Cheese scones recipe – Quick, cheap and super tasty!

I love to bake for my family but sometimes I am short on time, or motivation. Being able to whip up something that takes just a couple of minutes, and tastes lovely, is always good. From time to time we like to enjoy these cheese scones and I’m sharing my cheese scones recipe with you today.

Cheese scones recipe - Super cheap, simple and fast!

Ingredients for my cheese scones recipe

225g self raising flour

55g butter

A pinch of salt

30g grated cheese (I like mature cheddar for my cheese scones recipe)

150ml semi-skimmed milk

Method for my cheese scones recipe

Start by lighting the oven to gas mark 7.

Rub the flour and butter together. Add a pinch of salt.

Add the grated cheese.

Mix in the milk.

You should end up with quite a soft dough. If it is too wet then add a little sprinkling of flour.

I like to knead this really quickly. I just pat it together into a big round basically using my hands. Make the dough around 1/2 inch thick as these will rise up in the oven.

I use a reusable baking sheet, to cut down on waste. Also, I don’t need any butter or oil etc. I use a flat baking tray with the baking sheet on top of it.

I use a pastry cutter to make the rounds. These are the ones that I use. This makes it really simple to make scones that are all one size and cook evenly. I mix together the leftover dough and make a few more. Usually I get around 10 scones from this cheese scones recipe.

Before placing in to the oven I brush the tops of these scones with a little milk. It only takes a few seconds and helps them go golden and delicious in the oven.

Personally I bake these for around 12-13 minutes before placing on a cooling rack to cool down properly.

These are super simple taking just a few minutes to make and then a short time to bake. The cost of ingredients is super cheap. Also, I know when reading this cheese scones recipe you might think 30g of cheese isn’t much but it really is. Especially if you use grated mature cheddar.

    These are just like my cherry Scones, I don’t add salt as I’m not into salt (plus salt in cheese).

    Scones are one one the best homemade goodies (and fairy buns)

    This afternoon must bake scones thanks
