The Best Easy Cheesey Scones
My friend Elpie gave me this recipe last night, while we were having drinks...it is so simple I even remembered it this morning, without even writing it down.
You can whip these up in 20 minutes.
She has kindly let me share this, with you all.
When I tasted them this morning, with my coffee. It immediately brought back memories of when I was a little girl. I could swear this is how the old lady next door made her scones.
The smell, the texture, images flooded into my mind, my mouth was watering.
The longest part of making these scones, is actually waiting for the oven to heat up to 230C.
No rubbing in of butter, just toss the ingredients together, pat into shape and cook.
Just an addition to the recipe, I have just made them with a 1/2 tsp oregano and 1/2 tsp of Vegeta Chicken Stock Powder, great extra flavour
So Pre-heat oven to 230C
1 cup of plain high grade flour
2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
Pinch of salt
Good pinch of Cayenne Pepper
1 cup grated tasty cheese
1/2 cup milk
Sift the dry ingredient into a big bowl
Add cheese, stir
Quickly mix and turn onto lightly floured bench
Pat into a circle
Cut into wedges
Place on a lined baking sheet (you could just flour it if you wish)
Break open and put a nice pat of butter on top
