Cheese and Wild Garlic Scones

I've been out gathering Wild Garlic again. The flowers are starting to bloom on the plants and soon the leaves will  become more tough and not so good for cooking.  Scones are a really good vehicle for all sorts of flavours both sweet and savoury and the cheese worked really well with the wild garlic.

Cheese and Wild Garlic Scones
makes 6-8 depending on the size of your cutter!

225g self-raising flour
1 level tsp baking powder
50g butter
100g finely grated cheese
30g wild garlic leaves, finely chopped
1 tsp of dry mustard
1/4 tsp salt
freshly ground pepper
1 egg

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C
  2. Mix the flour and baking powder and rub in the butter until it looks like breadcrumbs.
  3. Stir in the cheese and the finely chopped wild garlic leaves.
  4. Beat the egg in a bowl and add to the mixture, add enough milk to bring it together into a soft dough.
  5. Dust your work surface with flour and gently pat the dough into a round about 2 cm thick, cut out your scones.
  6. Place on a greased and floured baking tray, brush the tops with a little milk.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the scones are golden brown.
  8. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.

The garlic flavour is subtle, but the scones were light and crumbly with a really tasty savoury flavour, I would certainly make them again.

These look fantastic! I can imagine how great they would be with loads of butter 😀

We love wild garlic and stuff it anything we can. My mothers garden is absolutely laden with it at the moment which means far more visits. Although it also means she'll get to try one of these beauties once we've had a chance to make them :)

I LOVE wild garlic and about 2 years ago, or even last year, I was so obsessed with it that I used it in ALL my cooking and baking! :-) These scones look delicious, and thanks for linking them to Cooking with Herbs! Karen

Oh I wish I could find some wild garlic round here! Been on the look out for two seasons now to no avail, used to have a garden full of it in France. Your scones look totally scrumptious, love a cheesy scone!

I always prefer savoury scones to sweet, these look great. I wish I knew where to get wild garlic near Walthamstow!

oh so good!... as you know I have a whole batch of WG growing near by. I shall adore making these! x

Thanks Dom, I'm sure you will love them, just don't breathe all over your eyelash peeps!

Aw thanks Sarah, pity you don't have any wild garlic, we have so much here.

At 1 May 2015 at 22:19 , Blogger Janice said...

Thanks Lou. Maybe chives would be a good substitute?

Thank you

Thanks Sarah

I think it's the short season that makes us become a bit obsessed by it, Karen.

Free food is always such a bonus, Anita-Clare. I hope your mother enjoys the scones.

At 1 May 2015 at 22:22 , Blogger Janice said...

Oh yes, Helen loads of butter ;-)

Thanks Katie, we really enjoyed these scones.

Let me know if you do, I'd love to see them.

I love the sound of savoury scones, I must get my hands on wild garlic , I love the sound of foraging but sadly can't do it here in London ...

These look so lovely and delicious, they would be perfect with a lovely salad for lunch.
