This is my basic sweet scone mix. You can adapt this to make any number of flavoured scones 

8 oz SR Flour

4 oz butter or marge

2 oz Castor suagr

2 eggs

2 fl oz milk


8 oz SR Flour

4 oz butter or marge

2 oz Grated Cheddar Cheese  (plus a bit more to sprinkle on the top)

1 tsp Mustard powder

2 eggs

2 fl oz milk

Here are some ideas to add to the basic Cheese Scone mix  (8oz)

Stilton & Walnut - substitute 2oz chopped stilton for cheddar and add 2oz chopped walnuts. Gently mix these in so as not to make mushy scones.

Cheddar and Stilton - Add 2oz stilton and only 1oz cheddar.  Place a bit of stilton on top of the scones to melt when baking

Wensleydale & Apricot - Substitute 2oz Wensleydale for cheddar and add 2oz chopped apricots

Cheddar & Tomato - just fold in a couple of chopped tomatoes at the last stage of the mix.

Cheddar & Sun-dried Tomato - As above for the fresh tomatoes

Parmesan and Black Pepper - substitute 1 oz of the cheddar for 1oz of parmesan and add a few grinds of fresh black pepper. Again, add a bit of pepper and parmesan to the top before baking

Cheese & Basil - Just add some freshly torn basil leaves add the last stage - this works well with Parmesan instead of (or as well as!) cheddar
