Savoury Scones 5 0 5 1
  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 1 hr
  • 10 mins

    1 hr

    1 hr 10 mins

  • Yields: 10 scones


3 cups self raising flour (400grams) plus extra for flouring board

½ teaspoon salt

Cayenne Pepper (pinch or two, I use two but this is to your taste)

½ cup grated cheese (I used mozzarella but can use other if prefer)

½ cup grated zucchini

3 pieces shortcut bacon chopped (if using other bacon fry off fat and allow to cool before adding)

1 chopped shallot

1 cup milk (little more if needed)

Sour cream or butter for serving


1Sift flour then add rest of ingredients apart from milk and mix using a knife. Slowly add milk until a soft dough is formed still using knife.


3Place on floured board and knead 3 times only. Using a floured rolling pin roll out to 1 inch thick. Cut into squares.


5Place in a lined sc with tea towel under lid, I like to leave a small gap between them to allow heat to come through between them to cook more evenly. They will still join but I have found having the gap at the beginning works better for me.


7Cook for 1 hours on high or until cooked. Serve warm or cold with butter or sour cream or both.

It costs you so much more to do them in the oven sadly
But up to you if you wish to spend the extra on electricity costs 🙂

I’ve found these to be very good and very versatile! I often add more grated veggies, more like a cup (today I did carrot, pumpkin and a little capsicum, no zucchini), and substitute half the flour for wholemeal. I also cook them in the oven because I can’t wait for a whole hour!!! Takes about 20 min in moderate oven.
