I love scones so much. They are ideal for a snack, served with soup, for a lunch time extra.

  • Portion size 12 servings

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1/2 cup plain Balkan-style yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup grated old Cheddar cheese


Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Cut in margarine into the dry ingredients until a nice crumbly texture is created. Mix in grated cheese. Mix in the yogurt and egg. You should have a nice firm dough. If it seems too dry, add a little bit more yogurt or some milk.

Roll out dough, or pat it out with your hand. Use a measuring cup to cut out 12 circles. Preheat oven to 400ºC. When oven is warm put scones in, and bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
