Savoury Pinwheel Scones

You can't say better than I am sitting on my comfy couch, writing a post listening to Chris Moyles on my brand spanking new laptop! AND the kids are out with their Dad getting some fresh air. Now I have just sat down after 1 1/2 hours of clearing up the dump that was my house. So I do feel quite justified having a bit of space for myself. Oh and did I say I was drinking a very yummy cup of coffee. Since my friend Kate has returned from the UK - she has introduced a love of real coffee! Naughty but nice!

Well as you can see by the title of my post and if you take a little glimpse of the photo below, you'll realise I've been a-busy a-baking again. Thanks to Liz who camp up trumps with the recipe for me after putting up with me for a good couple of months of badgering her for it. I tasted her lovely cheesey hamy scrolly delights at the school's local teddy bears picnic and I new I had to have this recipe for myself. I have struggled with making scrolls in past and this is my best attempt to date.

2 cups flour
2 heaped tsp baking powder
1 tsp mustard powder
salt n pepper
4 tsp butter
50g tasty (mature) cheddar
3/4 cup trim milk
filling: 100g ham, 100g tasty (mature) cheddar
  • set oven for 220C
  • sift flour, baking powder, mustard powder and s n p
  • rub in butter and cheese
  • gradually add milk using knife
  • knead gently
  • roll out to form rectangle
  • slice ham into ribbons and spread over scone mixture and cover with cheese
  • roll up and cut into 8
  • place on greased oven tray and bake for 20m or until golden
  • ENJOY!!!

My three monkeys loved them! These are great lunch box fillers! I'm thinking of substituting the ham with marmite as we are a family of marmite lovers. Hope you all are having a fab weekend!

PS - I hope you're trying some of these recipes Carina. After getting your cups you've got no excuse honey!

  1. My goodness, you were lucky to have all that lovely time to do what pleased you. You were a very good girl to do all the housework first, I wouldn't have! Those scrolls do look yum. Yes I think Marmite would be just fine, of course it would be Vegemite in our house -but then I wouldn't be making them would I?


I luuuuuurve comments, so please leave one - thanks!
