Homepride Flour & The Baking Nanna's

'Absolutely Delicious Scoffins' (savoury scone muffins)

  • Preparation time: 15 mins
  • Cooking time: Approx. 20 mins
  • Serves: 10-12 muffins


For the muffins:

  • 300g plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 150ml milk
  • 6 tbsps vegetable oil
  • A little salt to taste

For the filling (cheese and bacon):

  • 100g strong cheddar (grated)
  • 4 slices of bacon (ideally smoked), grilled and chopped

Chorizo & pepper:

  • 75g sliced chorizo
  • 1 small red pepper, deseeded and chopped into 1 inch slices

Leek and cheese:

  • 1 medium leek
  • 100g strong grated cheddar (you could switch this for any strong flavoured cheese) 


How to prepare

Preheat oven to 200C /GM6

  1. Put the flour and baking powder into a large bowl and fold your flavours in (cheeses / meats / veggies etc.) If you like a little seasoning, you can add salt at this point.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine all the wet ingredients until well blended.
  3. Fold the dry into the wet until combined, then spoon the mixture equally into the muffin cases.
  4. Pop the muffins on the middle shelf of the oven for about 20 minutes or until the tops are a golden brown.
  5. Best served warm.

You can play about with the flavours in these muffins – some of our favourite combos are listed here but you could also add herbs, spices, different vegetables, cooked meats and cheese. The cheese would be added as a dry ingredient (unless you used a ‘wet’ cheese like mozzarella). If you’re using bacon, grill for a few minutes until it’s as you like it. Cut into pieces and add to the wet ingredients. Chorizo can be prepared in the same way as the bacon and the peppers can be fried off at the same time. The leeks can be sliced and softened in a little butter in a frying pan until they’re gently browned.

We love cheese and onion, feta and olive, ham and cheddar and sundried tomato and mozzarella… You can also eat like a scone with butter or cream cheese. The possibilities are endless!
