Love a cheese scone! But as a slightly healthier alternative (no butter) I’m going to suggest these - I replace the buttermilk with (low fat) yoghurt. They’re great.

I've spent slot of time perfecting mine

450g Sr flour
1/2 TSP baking powder
Heaped teaspoon mustard powder
50g butter
300g very strong cheddar, grated
Extra cheese to top
300g milk (you might not need it all)

Rub together butter and flour
Add baking powder, mustard and grated cheese and mix.
Add enough mik to make a soft dough
Roll out to 3cm thick
Cut into rounds and place well spaced on a baking tray.
Brush with milk and top with more cheese.(bunch it together for a generous toppling)

Bale at 200 degrees C for 18-20 mins

Aloe to cool slightly and serve with butter (
and more cheese)

Recipe started off as a cranks one but I have changed it so much only the amount of flour has stayed the same!

Always add a couple of teaspoons of Colman’s mustard powder with the dry ingredients- if brings out the flavour of the cheese.

Thanks all! I'm going to try these as soon as the weather cools enough to use the oven grin

I use half Red Leicester and half Parmesan. The Red Leicester gives the scones a lovely colour and the Parmesan gives them a lovely cheesey flavour. I also add mustard.

I have also spent years perfecting my cheese scones...... yours are exactly like my recipe!

I use the strongest cheddar and if my chives are in season in the garden I add some snipped chives too.

Otherwise identical to yours.

This is from the dairy book of home cookery, with a few edits from my mum... although my brother is the best at making these!

I'd suggest using any of the recipes here, but, instead of grating the cheese, chop it into small chunks. Trust me, it's a winner!

Ooh! I have a really good tip for cheese scones, makes a yummy change- when doing the grated cheese topping, mix it with some Paxo / similar ( I use the gluten free equivalent but just so you know what i mean ) sage and onion stuffing mix

It gives a really nice savoury twist.

Place marking because I love cheese scones.

However much cheese the recipe says, I always use a lot more. To be honest, I use too much, and my cheese scones have no structural integrity - they are cheese slumps rather than cheese scones. They taste amazing, though.
