Cheese Scones

I’m usually more of a sweet toothed person but when it comes to savory, I love cheese! Cheese Scones weren’t something that I’d made previously but my Grandma’s classic scone recipe was so tasty that I thought, why not try giving it a twist. I can certainly say that these will now be made on a regular basis as they’re too good not to! They’re super easy to make and didn’t take a long time to prep or to bake (approximately 30 minutes in total). The recipe below makes 8 regular sized scones, perfect for family snacks.


  • 230g self-raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 45g butter
  • 100g mature cheddar
  • 140ml milk


Step 1

Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees (fan).

Sift the flour and salt into a bowl.


Step 2

Rub the butter into the flour and salt until they form a breadcrumb consistency.


Step 3

Grate the cheese and stir into the flour and butter mixture.


Step 4

Add the milk and mix thorough until all the milk is absorbed.


Step 5

Roll the dough out with a rolling pin onto a floured surface and use a cookie cutter to cut out the scones.


Step 6

Place the scone dough onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Brush the tops of each with a little milk and bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes.


Step 7

When the scones are golden brown, remove them from the oven and allow to cool.

Once cooled (or a little warm), enjoy!
