Method

Indulge in some moreish savory scones, try my two different fillings 1. Mrs Darlingtons Spicy Tomato & Sticky Onion Chutney with Lye Cross Cheddar 2. Caprese with Pesto – They are also great served alongside soups and stews, they also freeze well.

  1. Heat the oven 200C/Fan 180C/Gas 6

  2. Sift the flour, baking powder into a bowl

  3. Add the nigella seeds, oregano, cayenne pepper and seasoning

  4. Mix in the diced butter (or use a stand mixer) to breadcrumb stage

  5. Now add the grated cheddar and the milk until it has combined into a dough.

  6. Roll out to 2cm thick and use a cutter to cut out the scones and place on a greaseproof lined baking tray.

  7. Brush with a little milk to create a nice glaze and a extra little grating of cheese over the top.

  8. Then bake for 20-25 mins until golden brown and risen.

  9. Spoon a nice amount of Mrs Darlingtons Spicy Tomato & Sticky Onion Chutney wand slice a few slices of Lye Cross Cheddar cheese and put that into the scone.

    For the Caprese and pesto, spoon some pesto into a cut scone then add a thick slice of mozzarella, tomato and a few basil leaves.

Tips
  • Try not to overmix the dough as the gluten will tighten and you wont get a good texture and rise on the scones.
  • These scones are also great served alongside soups and stews.
  • They also freeze well!
