Method

  1. Heat oven to 220c/fan 200c/gas 7. Place the flour in a large bowl, then rub in the butter. Stir in the oats and cheese, then the milk – if it feels like it might be dry, add a touch more milk, then bring together to make a soft dough.

  2. Lightly dust the surface with a little flour. roll out the dough no thinner than 2cm. Using a 4cm plain cutter, firmly stamp out the rounds – try not to twist the cutter as this makes the scones rise unevenly. re-roll the trimmings and stamp out more.

  3. Transfer to a non-stick baking sheet, dust with a little more flour or grated cheese, then bake for 12-15 mins until well risen and golden. Cool on a wire rack before serving on their own or topped with mashed avocado, or soft cheese, and ham, cucumber or cress.

Added the teaspoon of baking powder, teaspoon of coarse grain mustard, salt and pepper and used a very strong cheddar and they were delish! I divided the mixture into six pieces and shaped them rather than rolling out. Made 6 nice sized scones. Flavour was great!

These are so easy and tasty that I make them at least once a week. I find I get about 8 per mix and they dont last long at all!

These are really delicious scones. I add extra cheese bringing it up to 100 grams, 1/2 a teaspoon of dijon mustard, and a good pinch of cayenne to give an added little kick, totally yummy!!

These are tasty bite-sized scones with the addition of seasoning and a tsp of mustard, as suggested. However, even after following advice to add 1 tsp of baking power, they still barely rose and were quite tiny (I made 14). I would prefer them bigger, so next time I would consider doubling the quantity and increasing baking time - or try out a different recipe.

Hi, I have also thought about doubling the mixture as they are so small. Did you try it and did it work? thanks for help
