Cheese scones




20 mins


15 mins


2 cups self-raising flour, sifted

100ml Maxigenes Goat milk, premade

3/4 cup cheddar cheese, grated

40g butter, cut into cubes

2 tbsp. fresh chives, chopped

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. ground cayenne pepper

1 tbsp.cheddar cheese, for topping


Preheat oven to 200°C and in a bowl mix together the flour and salt.

Rub butter through the flour mixture until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the grated cheddar cheese and chives.

Make a well in the centre and add as much milk as needed (a little at a time) until dough has the right consistency.

Lightly flour a flat surface and gently knead the dough with your fingers. Flatten it to about 2 cm thickness and cut the scones with a medium cutter.

Glaze the tops with extra milk then sprinkle cheddar cheese and cayenne pepper on top.

Place scones onto a lined baking tray and bake for 10 - 15 minutes, until the scones are golden brown.
