EQUIPMENT

  • 6 cm round cookie butter or glass

INGREDIENTS

  • 150 grams bacon rashers excess fat and rind removed
  • 310 grams self-raising flour
  • ¼ teaspoon (level) baking soda
  • 85 grams unsalted butter chilled and cut into cubes
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese grated
  • ½ cup spring onions finely sliced
  • ¾ cup buttermilk or milk
  • Extra melted butter or milk for brushing

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat the oven to 180°C

  • In a fry pan, fry the bacon until crisp and golden and cut into tiny pieces.
  • Combine the flour, baking soda and butter in a large mixing bowl. Use your finger tips to work the butter into the flour, until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  • Mix in the bacon, cheese and spring onions.
  • Gently mix in buttermilk to form a soft dough.
  • Tip the mixture onto a lightly floured work bench. Give a quick knead to bring everything together.
  • Roll the dough out on a floured work bench, so that it is about 1 ½cm thick. Using a 6 cm cookie cutter dusted in flour, cut dough into shapes. Place onto baking trays lined with baking paper.
  • Then, lightly brush the tops of the scones with melted butter.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 20 – 25 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool on wire racks.
  • Serve the scones warm with extra butter and cheese.
