Perfect cheese scones

Perfect cheese scones

These are my perfect cheese scones. A very nostalgic recipe for me and I think I have found the perfect ratios here. They are light and fluffy and very cheesy.

I made a whipped Bovril butter to go with them. Who doesn’t love a slathering of butter on a hot scone? Whipping butter makes it so easy to spread. Any leftover can be used on toast. Use Marmite if you prefer.


Cheese scones:

450gms self-raising flour (or 450gms cake flour with 6 tsp baking powder)

1 tsp salt

1 Tbsp English Mustard powder

2 Tbsp finely chopped chives (optional)

100gms butter, frozen or very cold, grated

250gms very mature Cheddar cheese, grated + extra for topping

200ml cold milk

1 large free-range egg (an extra egg to brush the top, optional)

Whipped Bovril butter:

100gms butter, room temperature

1 –2 tablespoons Bovril (however much you like)
