The pursuit of...Home Baking (5) (Wholemeal Chili Cheese Scone/Biscuits)

You know those moments in the evening when you just fancy something savoury?...
Well, the other evening I had one of those cravings and as I didn't have anything in to satisfy the crave , I decided to rustle up some wholemeal chili cheese scone biscuits.
Mmmm, they were so delicious, I wanted to share the recipe here with you.

They didn't really rise as well as they should have, hence why I have named them scone biscuits....

One of the other funny things is that I didn't quite have the correct baking equipment...No rolling pin or biscuit cutters - but I didn't let that stop me, oh no! A empty wine bottle as a rolling pin and a mason cup for the cutter did the trick!! (hehehe!).

Merlot anyone?! My empty wine bottle was the perfect substitute for a rolling pin!

Perfect for cutting out the dough, an upside down mason jar did the trick!


500g Wholemeal Flour
2 tbsp Baking Powder
Pinch of salt
Pinch of cayenne pepper
50g Butter
250g Grated Cheddar Cheese
300ml Milk


  1. Preheat oven to 200c
  2. Put the flour, baking powder, salt and cayenne pepper in a bowl.
  3. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  4. Stir in most of the cheese and sufficient milk to obtain a soft, easy-to-handle dough.
  5. Knead gently, then roll out on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of 2.5 cm / 1 in. Stamp out in rounds and place on a lightly greased baking tray.
  6. Brush with milk and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes until golden.
  8. Cool on a wire tray and sprinkle with Cayenne pepper.
  9. Eat as soon as possible.

Make sure to flour your jar or cutter first to stop the dough from sticking inside.

The nuggets of melted cheese on top when baked is the yummiest thing!

I ate mine with a warming spicy chicken soup, perfect for these cold evenings!

Let me know if you make them and what you think! Enjoy!
