“Plain cheese scones that are jazzed up a tad by the addition of some cayenne pepper. Great for a hearty brunch or served along side some soup. My sis and me just threw this together for breakkie some morning, so feel free to use other cheeses or spices according to what you have on hand.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a big bowl combine flour, soda, baking powder and cayenne pepper.
  2. Rub in the butter using your finger tips.
  3. Stir in the two cheeses.
  4. Add the yogurt and knead briefly until a soft (but not sticky) dough has formed. You might need a little more yogurt (or water) to reach the right consistency.
  5. Flatten dough and cut out scones of desired size. I use a 3 inch glass for cutting out the scones.
  6. Place on a paper-lined baking sheet and brush tops with some yogurt (if desired).
  7. Bake in the preheated oven at 200°C/400°F for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  8. Enjoy! :).
