A few weeks ago I baked some cheese scones…….or, as they became known “cheese surprise” scones (SURPRISE!!!! there is no cheese!!). Yes. I forgot to add the cheese. There’s nothing quite like putting everything in the oven, closing the door…..and thinking “I’m sure I forgot something”.
These things happen. Maybe just to me, but hey ho. I’ve been hankering for cheese scones since then and thought of trying a new recipe. My go-to scone recipe uses oil instead of butter. It is the quickest, easiest scone recipe EVER! The only down side is the resulting dough is quite soft, but it results in very light, fluffy scones. I keep thinking I really need to make scones from a recipe where you rub in the butter, to see if I can make a success of them (these scones look so much smarter than mine do). But I like an easy life and so I used my tried and trusted recipe.
This time I remembered to add the cheese! I used cheddar with herbs and garlic instead of plain cheddar, for something with a little extra oomf!
