Wild Garlic and Cheddar Scones

I am continuing to enjoy my experiments with wild garlic, and this week I have made my absolute most favourite recipe so far. These wild garlic and cheddar scones are just so scrummy, I can barely wait for them to cool enough to eat, and especially decadent with a knob of butter on….

220g self-raising flour
50g butter
1 egg
120g grated cheddar
Handful of wild garlic
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp mustard powder

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C
  2. Mix the flour, cayenne pepper and mustard powder, and rub in the butter until it looks like breadcrumbs.
  3. Stir in the cheese and the finely chopped wild garlic leaves.
  4. Beat the egg in a bowl and add to the mixture, add enough milk to bring it together into a soft dough.
  5. Dust your work surface with flour and gently pat the dough into a round about 2 cm thick, cut out your scones.
  6. Place on a greased and floured baking tray, brush the tops with a little milk.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the scones are golden brown.
  8. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.

These barely lasted long enough for me to freeze any, but I am going to make another big batch before the wild garlic disappears for another year.
