foodie april - cheese scones

Whipped these up for Saturday morning brunch. With the ease and grace of a veritable domestic goddess. Naturally.

They are seriously easy though, and perfect for those weekend mornings when you feel like a bit of baked goodness for breakfast and happen to have a few dodgy pieces of cheese in the fridge. You know, those mornings.

Cheese scones (makes 12) ~

2 cups cake flour

2 cups grated cheese (or 1 cup grated Gouda, 1 quarter over-ripe Brie, 1 hunk of blue cheese & some grated Parmesan. Or whatever, the point is: a lot of cheese.)

2 and a half teaspoons baking powder

salt 'n pepper

1 egg

milk to mix

Sift flour & baking powder. Add cheese. Season. Add egg. Add milk while you mix to a moist dough. Scoop into greased muffin trays and bake at 180 degrees C for approx. 15 mins.
