Thermomix savoury scones

Savoury scones

Oh I think this is the first official Thermomix recipe I’ve posted. Yes I still have it and yes I still love it. 🙂 I use it mostly for prep work rather than actual cooking (with the exception of making sauces and custard, which it excels at). It does also make great scones, in about 5 minutes, so I use it a lot for that.

(Yes I know, I purchased a ridiculously expensive machine and I basically use it to chop things and make sauces and scones – let me live, okay…)


Savoury scones

Okay, scones! I made these scones the other week for a potluck at April’s place, and I think they’re really good (toot toot). I’ve used the base recipe before (ie without the bacon, cheese and spring onions) to make sweet scones and they’ve always been excellent – fluffy and delicious.

If you have a TM try these. 😀

Thermomix savoury scones

Ingredients

  • 50g bacon (about 4 slices)
  • 50g cheese
  • 40g spring onions (2-3 stalks), rinsed, roots removed and roughly cut into several pieces
  • 430 g self-raising flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 200g thickened cream
  • 125g cold water

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. First, fry the bacon in a frying pan until cooked and crispy. Set aside to cool. Once cool, mix in the TM at speed 6 for 5 seconds. Remove from the TM bowl and set aside.
  3. Add the cheese to the TM bowl and mix at speed 8 for 3 seconds. Remove from the TM bowl and set aside.
  4. Add the spring onions to the TM and mix at speed 9 for 5 seconds. Remove from the TM bowl and set aside.
  5. Place the rest of the ingredients - flour, baking powder, salt, cream and water - into the TM bowl. Mix for 10 seconds on speed 6 to combine.
  6. Add the bacon, cheese and spring onions to the bowl.
  7. Set the dial to closed lid position and knead for 1 minute on interval setting.
  8. Place mixture onto lightly floured surface and press out until 2cm thick.
  9. Cut into squares - you should get about 12 - and place on a lightly oiled oven tray about 1cm apart.
  10. Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.

Notes

You can make sweet scones by omitting the bacon, cheese and spring onions, and adding a tablespoon of icing sugar to the recipe.
