Mature Cheddar & Wholegrain Mustard Scones
A delicious savory scone flavoured with sharp mature cheddar cheese and wholegrain mustard.
bicarbonate of soda
freshly ground black pepper
mature cheddar cheese
full fat milk
Preheat oven to 190 C/ 170 C fan.
Using your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour until it resembles coarse bread crumbs.
Add the baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt, pepper and 100 grams of the grated mature cheddar and stir well.
Add the milk, mustard and the Worcestershire sauce and stir with a wooden spoon until it forms a soft dough.
Knead briefly and roll out to a 1.5 - 2 cm thickness on a floured board. Cut into rounds using a circular cutter and place onto the baking tray.
Sprinkle with the remaining grated cheddar cheese and bake in the centre of the oven for 12-15 minutes, until the cheese on top is golden and bubbly.
Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely and store in an airtight container.
