After the over indulence of chocolate and big cakes of the last few weeks, I searched Mary Berry‘s baking bible in search of something savoury and found this recipe that I had yet to cover.
The recipe seemed easy enough and Mary’s instructions as always are clear and concise. I assembled all the ingredients as instructed and ended up with a scone dough that Mary suggests shaping into a round and dividing into 6 sections. This is where I added my own twist and decided to cut them out as usual scone shapes which I think looks nicer and is easier to store. I managed to cut out 9 scone shapes , sprinkled the top of them with the leftover grated cheese and popped them in the oven.
The smell as they were cooking was mouthwatering! After the pinger went off, I had a look at them and they were a beautiful golden colour and pretty even so I was pleased with them.
I am afraid to say that one didn’t get to cool off totally, before it was sampled but I maintain that this is the cook’s perk!
I tried the Scone round and found that after 15 minutes they weren’t cooked through sufficiently requiring 6-8 minutes more directly on the oven shelf…gorgeous
That’s great….did you make the round like Mary did or individual scones like me? These are my chief taster’s favourite and he’s a bit miffed that he has to wait till I have finished the book for more!
Unfortunately, your recipe is in print bothy too smal and too blurred to be legible
Thank you for your comment, but Week Thirty Three is perfectly legible on a computer, laptop or cellphone. However, the whole idea of Kim’s Cake Challenge isn’t to publish every recipe and use the blog instead of getting Mary Berry’s Baking Bible.
Just made these and they are the best cheese scones I’ve ever had
