Cheese & chutney scones Recipe

Cheese & chutney scones

Ingredients

  • 350g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 85g butter, diced, plus extra to serve
  • 200g extra-mature cheddar, grated
  • 284ml pot buttermilk
  • 6 heaped tsp onion chutney, plus extra to serve

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Dust a large baking sheet with a little flour. Tip the flour into a big bowl and mix in the bicarb and 1 tsp salt.
  2. Add the butter and rub into the flour with your fingertips to breadcrumbs, or whizz in a food processor until no butter lumps remain. Stir in all but a small handful of the cheese.
  3. Drizzle over the buttermilk and, using a cutlery knife, quickly mix together lightly. Tip onto a lightly floured surface and gently bring together with your hands into an oval about 2.5cm deep. Cut into 6 scones with a floured knife, then lift onto the baking sheet, leaving room for them to spread. Using the back of your tsp measure, press a small dip into the middle of each scone. Spoon the chutney into the dips, scatter over the remaining cheese, and bake for 10-15 mins until risen and golden. Best eaten on the day of baking with butter, plus a dollop more chutney, if you fancy it.
