Baking for Kids- Really Easy Cheesy Scones

These cheesy scones are so easy to make and only really need adult help with the oven and supervision with the cheese grater so are great for kids to make. Mine haven’t risen brilliantly but I think that is because I used plain flour with baking powder so instead I have swapped this recipe for self raising flour- they still tasted amazing though!

Ingredients (makes around 8-10)

225g self raising flour

55g butter

60g cheese

160ml milk

pinch of salt

pinch of pepper

Method

Heat the oven to 210C and cover a baking tray with grease proof paper

Mix salt and pepper into the flour and rub in the butter- try and use cold hands and not rub it too much- it should sort of look like breadcrumbs

Mix in nearly all of the cheese (leave a little for topping) and then slowly add the milk (again leave a few ml back)

Use your hands to pull it all together into a ball

Sprinkle flour on your worktop and rolling pin and roll out the ball until it is about 2cm thick. Stamp out circles using cutters.

Brush the scones with a little milk and then sprinkle with the leftover cheese

Bake for 12 -14 minutes and then leave to cool for a few minutes.

These scones are delicious eaten warm with butter.
