Fabulous week in Cornwall, sun, sand and pasty making. To top it all…I got to make scones with Marc Elliott from Bake Off 2020! Sharing my cheese scone recipe here.
200g plain flour
55g unsalted butter, cold and cubed
100g cheddar cheese, grated
2 teaspoons baking powder
Pinch of salt
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Milk for brushing top of scones
Small amount of grated Parmesan
Preheat oven to 200 degrees fan. Place the flour, salt, baking powder, and cayenne in a large bowl. Rub the butter into the dry ingredients with fingers to create fine breadcrumbs. Add the cheddar and gently rub in. Add most of the buttermilk and bring the mixture together using a dough scraper. If the mixture looks dry add the last bit of buttermilk. Knead lightly on a surface, taking care not to overwork the dough. Cut out scones using a round cutter or cut into wedges. Bake on a lined baking tray for 12 to 16 minutes or until well risen and golden on top.
