I like simple recipes when it comes to breakfast. Before coffee I’m not really able to give a complicated dish the attention it deserves. Heck, I’m not able to give anything the attention it deserves without caffeine. So uncomplicated wins hands down every time, besides there is nothing more satisfying than taking six or seven ingredients and turning them into something that makes your mouth water, even in an un-caffeinated state. The BH’s family traditionally serve cheese scones as a weekend breakfast. A tradition I am more than happy to get behind. They take no time at all to make while still filling the house with the smell of baking. Now I suppose if we lived on the American side of the pond, these would be called biscuits, but I prefer the term scone.
- 250 gms of self-raising flour
- 120gm of butter
- 100gm of cheddar cheese
- 2 eggs
- 1 Tbs of milk
- 2 tsp of paprika
- 1 tsp of dried mixed herbs
Place the dough on a well floured surface and flatten until about two and half centimetres thick. Then cut out rounds of dough. Place the scones on a baking tray and then beat the remaining egg and brush the tops of the scones with it.
