Weekend Wonderings

Happy Weekend, one and all! Short and sweet (or savoury?) today, a blinder of a recipe that I tried recently in preparation for Stella’s first birthday party. Which, in case you were wondering, I am raging denial about. But that’s another post.

So. Bacon and cheese scones. Perfect for breakfast, too, I suspect?

Recipe from Family Food and Travel.

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup crumbled bacon
  • 1½ cups heavy whipping cream
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Celsius.
  2. *If using fresh bacon – cook in a frying pan until crisp, set aside and drain.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  4. Add cheddar and bacon and stir.
  5. Add cream and stir until the mixture comes together.
  6. Knead the dough a few times.
  7. Pat the dough into a flat round about one inch thick and cut into eight wedges.
  8. Place them on a baking sheet and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until the tops are golden brown.

    Blooming love a cheese scone! My top tip – add a teaspoon or two of English mustard to the mix. It brings out the cheesiness somehow.

    Should probably note that its 450F not 450C :)

    450F is 230C

    On the other hand, these sound LUSH!!!

    A triangle shaped scone cut from a round is known as a bannock in Scotland – savoury ones like this are my favourite!
