Try this easy recipe - a quick and firm favorite in many households.


450g Self-raising flour
7,5ml Baking powder
5ml Fine salt
110g Butter, cut into cubes
2.5ml of mustard powder
Black Pepepr, to taste
15ml Finely chopped fresh rosemary
130g Grated cheddar cheese
60ml NESTLÉ Klim mixed with 210ml of warm water
Beaten egg, to brush the tops of the scones
Extra cheddar cheese, to sprinkle before baking
A few sprigs of rosemary, to garnish
Soft butter, to serve


Preheat the oven to 160 Degrees Celsius. Grease a medium-sized round, oval or rectangle baking dish.
Place the self-raising flour, baking powder and fine salt in a bowl and whisk to combine. Add the butter cubes to the flour mixture and rub in with your fingertips until a fine crumb remains.
To the flour-butter crumb, add the mustard powder, a crack of black pepper, chopped rosemary and grated cheese. Stir to combine
Make a well in the centre of the mixture and pour in the Klim combined with water. Gently mix together using a butter knife to combine being careful not to overwork the mixture.
Flour a surface and tip the dough out onto the surface. Pat the dough into a 2cm-thick round. (Insert timing)
Using a 6cm diameter round cutter, cut 12 rounds of the dough and place in the greased dish, packed tightly so the edges touch.
Brush the top of the scones with the beaten egg and sprinkle with a little more grated cheese and some rosemary sprigs.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15 – 20 minutes and serve just from the oven with soft butter.
