Cheese & Walnut Scones

  • 50g Whitworths Californian Walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 225g self raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp mustard powder
  • 25g butter, at room temperature
  • 75g mature cheddar cheese, grated
  • 125ml milk

Ready… Steady… Bake…

  • Preheat the oven to 220°C / Fan 200°C / Gas Mark 7, then grease a baking sheet.
  • Sieve the flour, baking powder and mustard powder into a bowl then rub in the butter to form crumbs.
  • Set aside 25g cheese for the tops then stir in the remaining cheese and walnuts.
  • Stir in enough milk to form a soft dough, then gather together and knead very lightly on a floured surface.
  • Roll out to a thickness of 2-3cm then cut out into 6cm rounds using a plain cutter (or whatever shape you like!).
  • Place onto the baking sheet, brush with a little milk then top with the set aside cheese.
  • Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes until well risen and golden then serve! Try served warm spread with a little butter!
