    About this recipe: This is a savoury scone which gets a slight flavour kick from mustard and cayenne pepper. They are delicious on their own, buttered or with leftover roasted meats and salad.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 8 

    • 220g self raising flour
    • ¼ tsp salt
    • ½ tsp mustard powder
    • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
    • 40g margarine or butter
    • 60g grated strong Cheddar cheese
    • 100ml milk

    Directions
    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Heat oven to 220 degrees C and lightly grease a baking tray.
    2. Sift flour, mustard powder, cayenne pepper and salt into a mixing bowl.
    3. Cut the margarine into small pieces and add to flour. Rub the margarine into the flour with fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in grated cheese.
    4. Add the milk gradually, stirring well with a knife until the mixture begins to stick together. With your hands, knead the mixture gently to form a soft smooth dough.
    5. On a floured surface flatten or roll the dough to about 3cm thick. Use a 5cm round cutter to cut out individual scones.
    6. Place scones on the greased baking tray. Brush with milk and sprinkle some extra cheese on top.
    7. Cook for about 10-15 mins until golden. Cool slightly before serving.

    Altered ingredient amounts. Add half a teaspoon of baking powder to make them rise even more  -  05 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)

    Used different ingredients. Swap the mustard & pepper for a tbsp of dried chilli flakes, or chilli powder for an amazing spicy kick!  -  24 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
