Cheese scones are a delicious and easy-to-make treat that can be enjoyed any time of day. They are a savoury alternative to traditional sweet scones and are perfect for a quick snack or a light lunch. Cheese scones are a popular dish in the UK and are often served alongside soups or stews.

One type of cheese scone that has gained popularity in recent years is the cheese scone round. This recipe, made famous by British baking icon Mary Berry, is a twist on the classic cheese scone. The scone is a large, circular scone that is baked on a baking tray and cut into wedges. It is perfect for sharing with friends and family and can be served hot or cold.

Making these scones are so easy and requires only a few simple ingredients. The dough is made with flour, baking powder, salt, mustard powder, cayenne pepper, butter or margarine, and mature cheddar cheese. Once the dough is mixed, it is shaped into a large circle and baked in the oven. The result is a delicious, savoury scone that is perfect for any occasion.

Tips for Making the Perfect Cheese Scone Round

Cheese scones are a classic British treat that can be enjoyed at any time of the day. Whether you are making them for breakfast, lunch, or a snack, there are a few tips and tricks that can help you achieve the perfect cheese scone round. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • Start with cold ingredients: When making scones, it’s important to use cold butter and milk. This helps create a flaky texture and prevents the scones from spreading too much while baking.
  • Use a light touch: When mixing the dough, be gentle and avoid overworking it. This can result in tough, dense scones.
  • Don’t overmix the cheese: While it’s important to evenly distribute the cheese throughout the dough, overmixing can cause the cheese to melt and create a greasy texture.

Serving Suggestions

Cheese scones are a versatile treat that can be served in many different ways. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

  • As a snack: Cheese scones are perfect for a mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack. Simply serve them warm with a little butter.
  • With soup: Cheese scones are a great accompaniment to soup. They can be served warm or cold, and the cheese flavour complements the soup perfectly.
  • With a salad: If you want to turn your cheese scone into a satisfying meal for lunch or dinner, serve it with a side salad. Chop up lettuce, tomato, cucumber, radish, and peppers, and throw in some olives. The saltiness will work really well with the creaminess of the cheese.
  • With jam: Cheese scones can also be served sweet. Try them with strawberry or raspberry jam for a delicious treat.

Experiment with different serving suggestions to find your favourite way to enjoy cheese scones. They are a delicious and easy-to-make treat that can be enjoyed any time of day.

Storage

Storing cheese scones is an important step to keep them fresh and tasty. Here are some tips:

  • Wrap each scone individually in plastic wrap or foil before storing at room temperature. This will prevent them from drying out on the first day.
  • If you plan to store them for longer, you can freeze them. To freeze unbaked scones, place them on a baking sheet and freeze them completely. Then transfer them to an airtight container and freeze for up to 3 months. To bake them, follow the recipe and add 3-4 minutes more in the oven.
  • If you have already baked the scones, let them cool completely before storing them. Wrap them tightly in plastic wrap or foil and store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3-4 days.
