Ingredients

  • 2 C grated cheese and a little extra for the tops
  • 3 3/4 C white flour
  • 1/4 C wholemeal flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 1/4 - 2 1/2 C milk

Method

Gently combine the cheese, flour, baking powder, pepper, and salt in a bowl.

Slowly add the milk and gently mix with your hand.

When the dough is just combined, scoop out spoonfuls onto a lined oven tray.

Sprinkle tops with cheese.

Bake at 200C for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Makes 10-12 scones.

Variation

You can make an even healthier version by using 3 cups white flour and 1 cup wholemeal instead. We have tried this variation and they taste just as nice. It all depends on how dense you like your scones.
