Add some spring flavour to your regular scones with this delicious recipe created by Brooke Neal.


  • 4 cups flour
  • 5 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 150g melted butter
  • 3 cups Tasty grated cheese
  • A bunch of fresh herbs, leaves chopped
  • Milk to mix, plus extra to glaze (450 mls approx.)
  • Grated parmesan to top


Preheat oven to 190C Fan bake. Butter the inside of your cast iron pan & set aside.

Into a large mixing bowl, sift flour, baking powder, salt & cayenne. Add in the melted butter, cheese & herbs, folding it through with a wooden spoon. Slowly pour in the milk, bringing the dough together. Take care to not overwork.

Flour the bench, turn dough out, pat it down to a 20cm circle & cut into 8 equal wedges. Glaze with milk using a pastry brush & top with parmesan. Transfer the dough to your buttered skillet & bake until golden brown (approx. 40 mins.) Remove from the oven & let the scones cool in the skillet. Enjoy warm with lashings of butter.

Note, you can play with the flavour combinations in this recipe. Halloumi & dill, feta & spring onion, rosemary & peppercorn cheddar etc. This is a simple and versatile base recipe to work with, that suits practically any flavours.
