    Herby Wholemeal Cheese Scones

    Whip up these light and fluffy scones full of cheesy goodness.

    Here's what you'll need...

    • 200g wholemeal self raising flour, plus extra for shaping
    • 1 ¼ tsp baking powder
    • ½ tsp mustard powder
    • 1/3 tsp salt
    • 30g un-salted butter, slightly softened
    • 40g cheddar, grated plus a little extra for topping
    • 1 tsp chopped thyme leaves
    • 25ml milk, plus a little extra for topping
    • 2 tbsp sour cream
    • 1 medium egg

    Step 1

    Select Steambake on your oven and preheat to 205°

    Step 2

    Add the self-raising flour, baking powder, salt and mustard powder into a large bowl and mix together.

    Step 3

    Combine the butter and crumble by hand until it looks like sand.

    Sprinkle in the cheddar and thyme.

    Step 4

    Crack the eggs into an empty jug and pour in the milk.

    Step 5

    Add the sour cream and stir well. Then pour over the dry mixture and mix until stiff.

    Step 6

    Spread some flour and roll the mixture until 2cm thick. Then cut into shape.

    Step 7

    Place on a tray, brush with milk and scatter with cheese.

    Step 8

    Pour water in the base of the oven. Steambake for 15 minutes to blast moisture into the food followed by a shot of dry heat for fluffy middles & a lovely, crispy outer-texture.

    Step 9

    Serve immediately and enjoy
