Treat after this morning’s walk as we visit another favoured cafe, OMNI, and I am allowed to share my mum’s cheese scone.
My mum says I am very lucky boy to get anything because I was naughty earlier, pressing her up against the wall in excitement trying to get my lead as we prepared to go out.
THEN losing my Chuck It ball as we approached the cafe. She had to backtrack to find it, leaving me tied up to a lamp post. Nix, no ball. Oops, I’d dropped it in the cafe and it had run under a table…
I have to say, however, the scone was nowhere near as good as the cheese scones she makes herself – not enough cheese by half. My mum’s are FULL of cheese.
My mum’s cheese scones
Rub 75gr butter into 500gr SR flour; add 1/2 teasp mustard powder and 250gr grated strong cheese (eg Cheddar, Red Leicester); bind with 300ml milk. Roll out on floured surface until one inch thick. Brush with milk, sprinkle with more cheese then cut into shapes and bake for 15 minutes at 220c (200c fan). Cool slightly, split and slather with butter.
Looks like she’s chopped sundried tomatoes into these ones. You can add bacon, olives, chives, ooh, all sorts of savoury bits. DROOL!
