Cheese Scone Loaf

I don’t know about anyone else, but over half term I just couldn’t keep my cupboards stocked quickly enough – I swear I have locusts not children. This easy cheese scone loaf recipe got me out of a pickle when I realised we were out of bread (again), and it is so easy and so handy that I thought I would share a rare recipe here.

This time the sun was shining so we had it as part of a quick ploughman’s type thing, but in winter I often make it to accompany soup – it is particularly good with tomato soup I think.

An easy recipe for a cheese scone loaf made from ingredients we all have in the house usually - a good stand-by for those run out of bread days!
Recipe type: Side Dish
Cuisine: English
Serves: 8 slices for 4 greedy people.
  • 50g Butter
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 120ml milk
  • 75g grated cheddar cheese
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 220/gas mark 7
  2. Rub together the butter and flour until they resemble breadcrumbs.
  3. Stir in 50g of the cheese.
  4. Pour in the milk and stir with a knife.
  5. Using your hands, bring the mixture together into a ball.
  6. Flour a clean surface and flatten the ball to about 3 cm thick. (Don't over handle the dough).
  7. Using a knife, score the circle of dough into 8 pieces.
  8. Sprinkle remaining grated cheese on top.
  9. Pop onto a greased baking tray.
  10. Bake for 25 minutes.

Yum, and like everything else in the house, gone before it had even cooled down!

You can also make sweet scones following the same ingredients and methodology – simply replace the cheese with 25g of caster sugar. Or use 125g of raisins, cherries or you could even try chocolate chips!

Hope those of you with kids had an awesome half-term, and that equally you are enjoying the peace this morning, might make another one of these while there is nobody here to make me share….

    That’s a handy standby for when I’ve forgotten to put the breadmaker on (often happens).

    Like you, I’ve got locusts for children and this looks great! Will have a go with the kids and then all argue about how to pronounce ‘scones’.

    Nice one! This will be perfect for lunch today and I can even enlist the help of my 3-year old. I love a savoury scone, so a giant one is just the ticket. Thanks for sharing! Xx

    Oh Sonya this is just brilliant. We are permanently running out of bread and total cheese fiends! Absolutely have to attempt to make this, sounds divine 🙂
