We are deeply saddened by the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Our thoughts are with the The Royal Family at this incredibly sad time as we join the nation in mourning the loss of our beloved Sovereign.

May she rest in peace.

Cheese and Onion Spelt Scones


450g Shipton Mill White Spelt Organic Flour

6 tsp baking powder

good pinch of salt

1 tsp mustard powder

80g butter

2 onions, finely chopped

150g mature Cheddar cheese, grated

300ml fresh milk

beaten egg or milk to glaze


Preheat oven to 220°C (fan oven 200°C).

Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and mustard powder into a bowl.

Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Stir in the onion and cheese, then mix in enough milk to make a soft dough.

Roll out on a lightly floured surface to about 1cm thick.

Cut out 16 rounds using a 6cm cutter, re-rolling as necessary.

Place on greased baking trays and brush with a little egg or milk.

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until well risen and golden.

Cool on a wire rack.

Freezer Tip: For a delicious cobbler topping for casseroles, remove the scones from the oven when they are two-thirds cooked, cool and freeze. Arrange the frozen scones on the casserole and cookfor 15-20 minutes.
