Cheese & apple scones
25minutes cooking time
- 200g self-raising wholegrain flour, plus extra for dusting
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp ground linseeds/flaxseeds
- 50g chilled butter, cubed
- 1 apple, with skin, cored and grated
- 90g mature Cheddar cheese, grated
- 100ml milk, plus extra for brushing
- Preheat the oven. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment.
- Sift the flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl, adding any bran left in the sieve/fine-mesh strainer. Stir in the linseeds/flaxseeds.
- Using your fingertips, lightly rub the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Stir in the apple and Cheddar. Gradually, stir in the milk using a fork, then bring the dough together with your hands.
- Press out the dough on a lightly floured work surface, about 2.5cm/1in thick. Using a 4.5cm/13/4in cutter, stamp out 8 scones. Place the scones on the prepared baking sheet and brush the tops with milk. Bake for 20–25 minutes until risen and golden.
