I love this scone recipe, I make it almost every weekend, and I still haven’t grown bored of it. You can use just the basic recipe, or you can jazz it up with tasty fillers.

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius

400 ml self raising flour
400ml grated cheese
400ml milk
salt, pepper, herbs and spices for flavouring
optional: tinned corn, fried onion, salami, feta, sun dried tomatoes, fresh chives….

Mix flour, cheese and spices
Mix in milk
Spoon batter into muffin trays
Bake in preheated for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Marmite sauce:
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon marmite
Melt in microwave for 10 seconds

Drizzle the marmite sauce over cut open scones… Mmmmm!

These cheese & corn scones were made for my Mom!

Hi! Thanks for the life-saver recipe; I had to quickly prepare some snacks for my mother-in-law. These scones are great! Thanks!
I added some cayenne pepper- delicious!

Hi – I was looking around at different scone recipes & this appeals to me! One question though, when you say 400 ml of flour – that’s a liquid measure – are you filling up a measuring cup to the 400 ml line? I get confused about this type of measuring, and I see a lot of South Africans & people from UK etc. use this style. I’m from SA, live outside of New York these days, but was born & raised in Canada & US….I have measuring “issues”! :) Sandy

Hi Sandy – The flour is measured in ml – that is why this is such an easy recipe – no scale required! So pour the flour into your measuring jug until the 400ml line, and then use the same jug for the grated cheese and milk. You only dirty one measuring jug, one mixing bowl, a spoon and the scone tray! Measuring issues no more! :-) Enjoy!
