SPINACH AND CHIVE SCONES
Author: 
 
Scones have always been a favourite of mine. Especially with a cup of freshly brewed tea! Here is the perfect savoury scone recipe that's loaded with spinach and cheese. Definitely a great way to start the day!
Ingredients
  • 2 cups Cake flour
  • 3 tbles Baking powder
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 1 tbles sugar
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder
  • 60 gr Butter
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup Yoghurt
  • 2 cups Spinach finely chopped
  • 1 cup Mature cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbles Chives chopped
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. In a mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and garlic powder.
  3. Add the butter to the flour mixture and mix either in a food processor or with your fingertips until it forms the texture of coarse meal.
  4. In another bowl, combine eggs and yoghurt. Beat lightly with a fork until just combined. Add egg to the flour mixture together with the spinach, cheese and chives and mix gently until just incorporated.
  5. Lightly flour your hands, then gather the dough into a ball. Transfer the dough to a well-floured surface and pat the dough out into a large rectangle approximately 2cm thick.
  6. Use a small round biscuit cutter to cut out about 12-15 scones, reshaping the dough as needed and using scraps to form new rounds of dough. Place the scone cut-outs on the prepared baking sheet, leaving a little space in between each one for spreading. Brush each scone with a little beaten egg.
  7. Bake the scones for 15- 20 minutes, or until they are lightly golden brown.
Scones really are best served warm, straight-from-the-oven
