Cheddar Cheese Scones

I made these lovely cheddar cheese scones yesterday for breakfast and they were phenomenal.  The warmth and perfect flaky texture was absolutely everything a scone should be.

The recipe is from Canadian Living – my Mom told me that their recipes are thoroughly tested, so it’s really no surprise that they turned out so well!  The changes I made to the recipe were to use buttermilk instead of Balkan-style yogurt and I didn’t have whole wheat flour in the cupboard.  (The recipe says to use one cup whole wheat flour and one cup all-purpose flour, but that is optional.)

If you are looking for a quick and easy breakfast or snack – this recipe is awesome! Even my sister Sarah – who is a picky eater – loved them.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preparation

Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Cut in margarine into the dry ingredients until a nice crumbly texture is created. Mix in grated cheese. Mix in the buttermilk and egg. You should have a nice firm dough. If it seems too dry, add a little bit more milk.

Roll out dough, or pat it out with your hand. Use a measuring cup to cut out 12 circles. Preheat oven to 400ºC. When oven is warm put scones in, and bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
