  • Step 1

    In a bowl, grate the cheese as finely as you can. Add the beaten eggs, the raisins and the self raising flour and mix thoroughly. Cover with cling film and place in fridge.

  • Step 2

    Start preparing the dough. In a large bowl, sift the flour, add the salt, baking powder and yeast powder and mix thoroughly.

  • Step 3

    Add the butter, the eggs and gently mix the dough with your fingers.

  • Step 4

    Add warm water and warm milk slowly slowly. Make sure it's warm and not hot as it will kill the yeast.

  • Step 5

    Knead the dough for a few minutes until the mixture is firm. If the dough is too wet, add a little more flour. Cover the dough mix with cling film and place in warm area for 2 hours or until it has doubled in size.

  • Step 6

    Take the filling mixture out of the fridge and the dough. Divide the dough into small sections and roll out into a circular shape. It will make around 10 medium sized cheese scones.

  • Step 7

    Take a small part of the filling and roll into a ball in your hand. Place filling in the middle of the circle of dough. Brush with a splash of egg for the glazing and wrap dough around the ball, making a circular ball.

  • Step 8

    Repeat until you have used up all the dough and all the cheese filling.

  • Step 9

    Place scones in a pre-heated oven at 180°C for around 40 mins until they are golden brown!
