Easy Cheese Scone Recipe

Lockdown is approaching again which means a lot of people will have a lot of time on their hands. 

So, learn to keep everyone in your house eating good with this delicious and easy cheese scone recipe! Check it out below!


  • 225g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 55g chilled butter, cut into cubes
  • 120g of grated mature cheddar
  • 90-100ml milk, plus 1 tbsp for glazing



  • Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 with a large baking tray inside. Sift the flour, salt, cayenne pepper and baking powder into a bowl, then sift again to make sure the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  • Add the butter to the bowl and make breadcrumbs by mixing with your fingers. Sprinkle 100g of the cheese into the breadcrumb mixture and rub together until evenly distributed. Try not to mix too much as the heat from your hands may start to melt the butter.
  • Make a well in the middle of the mixture you have and add enough milk to make soft but firm dough. Make sure you don’t pour in all the milk at once as you may not need it all to get the right consistency.
  • Lightly flour a surface and roll out the dough to approximately 2cm thick. Cut out the scones with a medium (about 8cm) cutter, then put on a sheet of baking parchment, glaze with a little milk and sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Slide onto the hot oven tray.
  • Bake in the oven for 15-20 mins or until golden brown and cooked through.
