Ingredients

  • 200 g Eskort Diced Bacon, fried crispy
  • 560 ml (2 ¼ C) flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 ml (1 t) salt
  • 5 ml (2 ½ t) baking powder
  • 250 ml (1 C) cream
  • 250 ml (1 C) buttermilk
  • 250 ml (1 C) cheddar cheese, cubed
  • 1 egg
  • apricot jam

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.

  • Place the dough on a flour-dusted surface and form it into a 5 cm thick round shape.
  • Divide the dough into 8 and place onto a baking tray.
  • Beat the egg and glaze the scones.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
