Rustic Cheese and Garlic Savoury Scones

Everyone loves a scone be it savoury or sweet , today I decided to tackle the savoury scone perfect to enjoy straight from the oven with what ever filling you choose . Ideal with cheese and pickle the possibilities are endless and anyone can do this recipe .


500g of self raising flour

6 teaspoons baking powder 

3 free range eggs 

5 table spoons of milk, add more to suit.

50 g of grated cheese

I used garlic jam which I blitzed but you  could use garlic paste or powder.

Preheat the oven to 200 c

I didn't have to weigh the flour out as I used the whole 500 g bag , sift the flour into a big mixing bowl . I added 6 teaspoons of baking powder.

In a seperate bowl beat the 3 eggs and add the milk.

You can either use a mixer when adding the 159g of butter or spread. I like to mix to a fine tilth by hand.

Add the 50 g of grated cheese. 

Next add the garlic.

Then add the beaten egg and mix ( you make have to get your hands in there ( don't wish to get them mucky dust your hands with a little flour .

You'll have a lot of dough so it is best to work in manageable batches.

Roll the dough out to 2.5 cm and then use a suitable round cutter or an up turned glass to cut out your shapes.

Placed on a greased baking tray and bake in the oven for 15 minutes making any allowances if the oven is fan assisted.

Remove from oven leave to cool or eat them warm.
