Scones with spice

My favorite weekly bake is curry scones with shredded cheddar. This has become a stapleĀ in our house, substituting for bread in many cases. The spicy scones go well with both sweet and savory toppings.


  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking flour
  • 1.5 sticks butter
  • 4-6 oz shredded cheese (to taste)
  • one teaspoon curry powder
  • half cup sugar (brown is good)


  • Combine all the dry ingredients, including cheese
  • Melt the butter and rub through the dry mix
  • Add two eggs and half cup juice
  • shape palm sized rounds (or cut out with cookie cutter)
  • Bake for 19 mins at 400 degrees
