Loula, you babynapper, I adopted Andy first! LOL. Marvelous scones. I used the mustard and cayenne and yummmm. After trying them warm and cold I strongly recommend warm. They will reheat nicely with a few seconds in the microwave. I used fat free cheddar and a heart healthy fat margarine. The cheese near the surface melted out and burned in little puddles on the pan. While you certainly smell the burning cheese the scones are fine and it's east to break the cheese puddles off on the scones once out of the oven.
Yummy, yummy scones! I made them for breakfast this morning using half whole spelt and half ordinary flour, left out the mustard but used the cayenne pepper and they tasted simply delish! The dough was super easy to work with and everything came together quite quickly. I got 6 big scones out of the recipe (7.5 cm in diameter) and those puffed up nicely during baking. After exactly 10 minutes they were perfectly done and ready to be devoured. Thanks so much for sharing this gem of a recipe, Andy M! I will most definitely make these often again (e.g. with soup). Made and reviewed for one of my "babies" during Spring PAC 2009.
