Well, this is weird isn’t it? How are we? Safe and well, I hope.
We’re all good here. Eating everything I can get my hands on and I’m pretty sure I can now be classed as borderline alcoholic but we’re healthy and that’s all that really matters right now.
Cooking, eating well and experimenting with food has always been my therapy. But for a short while, I’ve found it difficult to actually spend time doing the latter. So, I’m taking this abundance of time we now find ourselves with to get back in the kitchen and share it with you guys a little more often.
I also made a significant wine-induced purchase that consisted of a cross-trainer and indoor gym equipment, because I’m still keeping everything crossed that our Spanish wedding goes ahead later this year…
Can you believe I’ve never attempted a cheese scone recipe? I don’t know why, they’re delicious. And so simple, too.
I took a Mary Berry scone recipe and tweaked it with cheddar cheese and a shit load of chilli. There were quick, easy and demolished within 36 hours of baking.
- 450g self raising flour
- 2tsp baking powder
- 50g caster sugar
- 100g butter
- 2 eggs
- approx. 100ml milk
- 1tbsp chilli flakes (less if you’re a wimp)
- handful of grated cheese
- Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
- Add the flour, sugar and baking powder into a bowl and mix well.
- Add in your butter and use your finger tips to rub it in, like a crumble, until you’ve got your breadcrumb consistency.
- In a measuring jug add the two eggs (cracked if that wasn’t obvious 🤨) and fill the jug up to the 300ml level with milk.
- Add the egg and milk mix to your flour until you’ve got a sticky dough.
- Turn the mixture out onto a floured surface and lightly knead in your cheddar and chilli flakes.
- Roll out the dough until its 2cm thick and cut put as many scones as you can.
- Pop them on a greaseproof paper lined baking tray, brush with a lil extra milk and stick them in for 15 mins.
A delicious, easy, slightly spicy, cheese scone recipe!
I’ve been reaching out to my social media followers, especially on Facebook and Instagram, to get some recipe inspiration. I may as well take advantage of this lockdown and learn some new skills, hone new recipes and find new recipes! So what have you got for me?
Any go-to meals that never fail to please? Let me know in the comments!
Lots of love, LB x
