Penny Lane’s Famous Savoury Scones Recipe

Kitchen Items

  • Small saucepan,
  • Large mixing bowl,
  • Wooden spoon,
  • Measuring Cup,
  • Muffin pans (mini-24 or regular-12) – well greased with butter
  • Fan-forced oven (200 C) pre-heated


  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp dried mustard
  • Cayenne pepper (to taste ¼ or ½ tsp)
  • Pinch of salt & pepper
  • 60 grams of butter
  • ½ cup of very finely grated Parmesan cheese


Combine dry ingredients (flour, cheddar cheese, baking powder, mustard, cayenne pepper, salt & pepper) in the mixing bowl and mix well.  Add the milk and blend thoroughly to make a batter.

Distribute the batter evenly in each muffin compartment.

Bake for 10-12 minutes (depending on oven type).  Remove and allow to cool.

Place the butter in the saucepan at a moderate heat – taking care not to burn – when fully melted add in the grated Parmesan, stirring frequently to avoid clotting.

Place the scones on a platter or serving bowl and drizzle the melted butter & cheese sauce.  Best served warm and fresh.
