Home Baked Cheese Scones

The sky is so blue here today, Niah said to me earlier 'Mama look at the sky, it's so beautiful' and she was right.

Both her and Alex are out grocery shopping, the house is so quiet, the back patio doors are open allowing the sweet smell of Spring to flow through the house and the birds are chirruping such a pretty verse, they sound so happy.

A weekend recipe . . .

Let me share with you a simple method for Cheese scones, It's a recipe I've developed my self, it can take a while to perfect a recipe using alternate ingredients and I am now really pleased with these, they are so tasty. 





Ingredients -

250g organic wholemeal spelt flour
250g organic gluten free flour
2tsp gluten free baking powder
1/2 tsp Himalayan pink salt / sea salt
300g organic cheddar cheese / hard goats cheese
400ml almond milk / any plant milk
1 free range egg beaten to brush the tops / milk (if you don't eat eggs)

Method-

- Preheat the oven to 220C, Line a baking tray with baking paper.
- Place both flours, baking powder, salt and cheese (leaving a little back to sprinkle on the tops) in to a large mixing bowl and combine.
- Add the milk and bring the mixture together with a wooden spoon or your hands but don't over work. The mixture will be sticky, but don't worry.
- Pour the mixture out on to a floured surface and pat in to a 1inch thick round.
- Dredge your cutter, (I use a 2 1/2 inch cutter) in to flour, so as not to stick and cut out your scones.
- Place them on to the baking tray, brush the tops with the beaten egg and sprinkle on the remaining cheese.
- Cook for 15-18 minutes until the scones are risen and golden.
- Cool slightly on a wire rack.



These scones are so good while still warm, in fact over the next few days after baking I will pop one back in the oven for five minutes to heat it up. 
They also freeze well, I'm planning on freezing a batch ready for the soon approaching new born days.

They are beautiful simply with butter or I really enjoy them with butter, a slice of organic cheese, seasonal leaves and caramelised red onions.

They are a really good snack for little ones, Niah adores these, and she's gotten really good at making them too!


Wishing you a beautiful light and love filled weekend x
