The Baking Queen’s Savoury Scones

Barbara (aka The Baking Queen) is not only my neighbour but also a dear friend. She is a good cook but her specialty is baking. She bakes all sort of wonderful things from savoury scones and quiches to chocolate profiteroles and smidgen cupcakes and send them over the fence for Bob and I (I’m quite certain that she gets commission from our local gym!) One of my favourites is her savoury scones.

2 cups plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
A pinch of salt
1 tbsp of butter (approx.) or about 20 grams
1 tbsp each of bacon, tomato, onion, capsicum, parsley (all chopped) and grated cheddar cheese
Cracked black pepper
½ cups of milk

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C
Mix flour with baking powder and salt and rub butter into the mixture until it resembles bread crumbs.
Add chopped bacon, tomato, onion, capsicum, parsley, grated cheese and pepper (to taste). Add milk and mix together gently with your finger tips until it forms into soft dough.
Gather the dough and pat it down on the floured surface about 2-3 cm thick. Cut into wedges or square or cut into small rounds with ring cutter if you fancy. Glaze with extra milk and bake for 15-20 minutes.
