Easy cheese scones

Serves   6
Prep time: 15 mins
Cooking time: 10 - 15 mins

These wonderful cheese scones are so easy to whip up. Serve with hot from the oven with a generous dollop of butter for a tasty morning tea treat. 

Cheese scones




  • 3 cups plain flour
  • 6 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup of grated Tasty cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of milk (approximately)

For cheese and ham scones add:

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped ham


  1. Preheat the over to 200C.
  2. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  3. Place the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt, ham and cheese) into a bowl and mix together.
  4. Add the egg and most of the milk.
  5. Mix together by cutting through the mixture with a knife (this avoids over-mixing which gives tough scones).
  6. The mixture should be quite wet so add the remaining milk if required and mix in.
  7. Turn the mixture onto a floured surface.
  8. Cut into shapes, place on the lined baking tray, sprinkle a little cheese on top and bake for 10-15 minutes.
  9. The scones are ready when risen and golden brown.
