Cheese, Paprika and Chia seed Scones

Baking day in the Dotty kitchen creating some new ideas for savoury scones for afternoon tea. I took my basic cheese scone recipe and added chia seeds the result is delicious especially warmed with mango chutney!


225g Self raising Flour

pinch of salt

1/2 teaspoon English mustard powder

1 teaspoon sweet paprika

1 tablespoon chia seeds

50g butter

75g cheese grated

1 egg

100ml milk

Preheat the oven to 200c and line a baking sheet with baking parchment. Mix flour, salt, mustard, paprika and chia seeds and rub in the butter. Add in the cheese reserving a little to sprinkle on the top. Whisk the egg and milk together in a bowl and add to the flour and cheese mixture reserving a little for glazing. Mix to a dough and then place on a floured surface and roll out to a 2.5cm thickness. Cut into rounds and place on the baking tray. Glaze with the remaining milk and egg mix and sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 12-15minutes until golden brown.
