162. Chilli Cheese Scone Recipe

Hello lovelies.

Today I'm sharing a failsafe, super simple recipe for cheese scones - with a (spicy) twist. I've made these scones several times and I've adapted the recipe slightly each time, and I think I've finally nailed it, so here is my recipe for Chilli Cheese Scones.

225g plain flour
50g room temperature cubed butter
3tsp baking powder
140ml milk
150g grated cheese (preferably mature cheddar)
Pinch of salt & pepper
1tsp chilli powder or chopped chilli's (Very Lazy Chilli works well)
Jalapeños to top
Cheese to top

1. Preheat your oven to 220c or Gas Mark 6
2. Mix together the flour, baking powder and butter with your finger tips to create a breadcrumb effect
3. Add the milk and cheese and quickly mix together
4. Add your seasoning (as much or as little as you want)
5. On a lightly floured surface, mould the mixture into scone shapes (I made 8)
6. Place the scones on a greased tray (I used Chilli FryLight to add some extra spice) with a decent space between each one, as they will expand during baking
7. Sprinkle the top of the scones with some cheese and add a jalapeno
8. Bake in the middle of the pre-heated oven for around 20 minutes but make sure to check on them as they can so easily burn
9. Serve with lashings of butter, or with pickle if you fancy!


  1. OOh these look absolutely delicious. Im trying to eat super healthy at the mo so they'll be off my radar for a while but I'll definitely try them out. When I make cheese scones I always add a little English mustard into the mix as I find it really works well with the cheese xxx

    1. Ooh, I'll definitely try the mustard trick next time! I love a bit of spice! I hope you get a chance to try these when you're having a treat day :) thanks for stopping by! xxxxx

  2. Drooooool!! Minus the jalapeños though (I'm a massive wimp) xxx

    1. Hahaha, the jalapenos are a little risky, I'll admit! I'm a total spice addict so I love them! Thanks for commenting Kirsty. xxxx
