What’s for tea? Christine’s Cheesy Garlic Scones

Wild garlic

For those of us out walking, it’s the season for wild garlic! I’ve been foraging recently and been putting my harvest to good use making these. 

There are a few golden rules for picking wild garlic. These are so easy and very moreish… enjoy!


  • 225 g (self-raising) flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 50g butter
  • 1 egg
  • milk
  • 100g grated cheese
  • 30g wild garlic leaves (finely chopped)
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Optional ingredients

  • 1 tsp ground mustard powder
  • ground pepper


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C
  2. Mix the flour and baking powder together and rub in the butter (it should look like breadcrumbs)
  3. Stir in ground mustard, salt and pepper, cheese and finely chopped garlic leaves
  4. In a separate bowl, beat the egg and add this to the mixture with the milk
  5. It should make a soft dough
  6. Sprinkle your work surface with flour and pat the dough into round scone shapes about 2cm thick
  7. Place these onto a greased and floured baking tray
  8. Glaze the tops with milk
  9. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown
  10. Cool on a wire rack
