Recipe: Nanny Thelma's Cheese Scones

Listen and Bake:

Makes 12 - and one more for the baker.


  • 2 heaped cups of plain flour
  • 4 levelled tsps of baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp of table salt
  • 1 1/2 Cups of grated cheese
  • 1 cup of milk
  • Water

Oven settings:

Pre-heat your oven to 210 degrees Celsius - fan-bake if possible.


  1. Assemble all of your dry ingredients in a large bowl. With a knife, mix them all together.
  2. Pour in your milk into the bowl, and with splashes of water, mix until you’ve got a soft wet-ish dough.
  3. Sprinkle more plain flour onto a dry surface, then transfer the dough to the powdered surface.
  4. Kneed the dough, continuing to add more flour to the dough until it is no longer sticky.
  5. Squish the dough to an inch in width. 
  6. Dip your scone cutter into some flour before you cut around the edges of your dough. Continue to cut until you need to reshape your dough to cut more.
  7. Place your cut dough onto an oven tray - then place into a pre-heated oven of 210 degrees Celsius for 12 minutes.
  8. Let your scones cool down before serving with butter, peanut butter, jam, cream, whatever you want - we don’t care too much what you use.
