What you need:
225g self-raising flour (I used plain flour, with 4 level teaspoons of baking powder)
A pinch of salt
75g finely grated Cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
What you do:
- Heat oven to 220 C. Grease or line a baking tray.
- Mix flour and salt, rub in margarine. Stir in cheese and mustard and add milk. Mix to a soft dough and turn onto a floured surface.
- Knead lightly and roll out to about 1/2 inch. Cut into triangles and place onto the baking tray. Sprinkle some more cheese on top.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes until the bases are lightly browned.
Apparently, scones are best eaten the same day they are made. I suggest eating them straight from the oven even! These scones were warm and oh-so-fluffy! Justin especially liked the texture. I haven't actually eaten scones before this, but both Hadi and Justin agreed that these were pretty good :D So yay! Their only complaint was that it could've used more cheese :P You can never have enough cheese ;) ahahaha
These scones were nice and fluffy, but just in case, you should add all the milk at once (not gradually) and handle very lightly when mixing and rolling. Otherwise, your scones might turn out flat and heavy. I didn't have much problems though, even though I had to knead the dough some more (for the extra flour). But you have been warned :D
