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.

Really yummy! I didn;t need to add anything other then the ingrediants given

Really, really tasty! I used butter milk instead, and the use of vintage cheddar made the flavour more intense.
Mine didn't quite rise enough for me, so I'll add a teaspoon of Bicarb or an egg in future.

These were fab. I realised I had no milk so used water instead and they turned out fine. Added mustard powder and a bit of salt as suggested. Lovely.

Really quick and easy. I added some marmite for a kick and it worked very well.

I added the mustard powder and a pinch of salt as suggested by other reviewers and also extra cheese and some mixed herbs to the top of the scones before baking. These are absolutely delicious!! I will definately make these again!

Absolutely lovely! Very easy to make and went down a storm. My husband really enjoyed them. Made double the quantity and only lasted a few days. Will be making these again this week.

I used 20g wholemeal flour as I didn't have any porridge oats - worked well :)

Delicious, will definately be making again very soon!

I've always loved cheese scones, and used to put the Colman's mustard powder through the mix.
Now I'll try making them again - with the oats (hubby is diabetic).
One of my favourite toppings is sliced tomato and hard-boiled egg.
