Cheesy Spelt Scones

It was on a lazy Sunday morning when he looked at me in the eyes and asked if I would marry him. I managed to say yes in the middle of tears of happiness rolling down my cheeks. This was a perfect moment that I will remember forever. How happy we are!!! Since then we’ve been busy thinking about ideas for the wedding, where we want to do it, who we want to be there, etc., so exciting!

Today I just wanted to dedicate my Luke a recipe. I thought of scones but wanted to make them special (savoury and with a heart shape). Scones are quintessentially British. Devon, where we live, is famous for its Devonshire Cream Tea which consists of sweet scones served with clotted cream and jam. A delicacy we particularly enjoy!

Luke’s parents got me a very nice cooking book entirely dedicated to scones (written by a Kiwi author). I got inspired from the goat’s cheese and sage scones recipe in the book to make my I Love You cheesy spelt scones. Delicious with a warm autumn soup.

Cheesy Spelt Scones – makes about 10

  • • 200g wholegrain spelt flour
  • • 2tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • • A pinch of salt
  • • 150g Emmenthal cheese, grated
  • • 1 handful sage leaves, chopped
  • • Black pepper
  • • 200ml milk

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 220°C. Line a baking tray with baking parchment.
  • 2. In a bowl, mix together the flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt, black pepper, half the cheese and sage leaves. Make a hole in the middle and pour the milk in it. Combine with a fork.
  • 3. Put the dough on a floured work surface. Stretch the dough with a rolling pin until it is about 1.5cm thick. Cut shapes with a cookie/scone cutter. Place on the baking tray and sprinkle with the rest of the cheese.
  • 4. Put in the oven for about 10min until golden. Best eaten warm straight away!
  • Scones Fromage-Epeautre – pour environ 10 scones

  • • 200g de farine d’épeautre complète
  • • 2cc de bicarbonate de soude
  • • Une pincée de sel
  • • 150g d’emmenthal râpé
  • • Quelques feuilles de sauge, émincées
  • • Poivre noir
  • • 200ml de lait

  • 1. Préchauffer le four à 220°C. Couvrir une plaque à four de papier sulfurisé.
  • 2. Dans un saladier, mélanger la farine, le bicarbonate de soude, le sel, le poivre, la moitié du fromage et la sauge. Faire un puits au milieu et y verser le lait. Mélanger à la fourchette.
  • 3. Etaler la pâte sur un plan de travail jusqu’à ce qu’elle soit épaisse d’1,5cm. Découper des formes à l’emporte pièce. Mettre sur la plaque de cuisson et parsemer le reste du fromage sur le dessus des scones.
  • 4. Mettre au four pour environ 10min jusqu’à ce qu’ils soient dorés. Meilleurs mangés de suite!
