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.

Just made these, first time tasting scones-not at all popular where I come from- and definitely first time baking them... Followed the recipe suggestion with the grated cheddar on top and added a tsp of garlic spread to the flour which gave it a real kick! I cut them bigger than 4cm but they turned out a bit raw from the inside although they were starting to burn from the outside, I guess due to the big size..

I made these at the start of the week, but even adding some extra mustard powder and parsley I found them a bit bland. Tried again today with some coarse mustard and a dash of tabasco and they are a bit more flavourful. I will definitely try again with some stronger cheese too. Yum!

Made these today and they were lovely. They didnt seem to rise much though - I think I maybe rolled the dough out too thinly. When I make them again I will definitely add a bit of black pepper and maybe even some paprika to the dry mix to give them a bit more flavour and I am also keen to try the chopped chive and dried herb idea. Looks like i'll be making plenty more batches!

Did not rise very much, looked like the picture though and tasted great! I added english mustard to the receipe and an egg in place of some of the milk.
