Recipe: 5 Min Choc Chip/Cheese/Cinnamon Scones

Made 4 rounds of these with my housemates for Jazz Night on Friday! :)

INGREDIENTS (makes 12 per round):

150ml Full Cream/Skimmed Milk
150ml Pure Cream
1 Egg
3 cups Self Raising Flour
2 tablespoons Caster Sugar
1 cup mix ins (choc chip, cheddar cheese, cinnamon, dried fruits)
Zest of one Lemon, finely grated


  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius.
  • Line a large baking tray with baking paper.
  • In a medium bowl, hand whisk the milk, cream and egg until well combined.
  • Add the flour, sugar, mix in and lemon zest and gently stir together with a spoon until mixed.
  • Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently until a soft dough forms.
  • Press the dough flat until 2cm thick.
  • Using a cookie cutter or glass, cut round scones from the dough and place onto the baking tray

I only had a heart shaped cookie cutter which explains why my scones vaguely looked like hearts.. Hee

  • Brush the tops with milk and sprinkle with a little extra caster sugar
    (for the glaze effect-look at picture below :D)
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown and risen.

ENJOY! We all thought the cheese and oregano ones were the best :D
