Cauliflower Cheese Scones
Crunchy, fluffy, cheesey - the scones make a delicious alternative to bread and great baby led weaning and kids snack
- 1 c (150g) plain wholemeal flour
- 1c (150g) plain white flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ½ c (small) (150g) cold cooked cauliflower
- ⅔c (150ml) Milk
- ¾ c (75g) cheese grated
Preheat oven to 220˚C/425˚F
Roughly mash the cauliflower – you don’t want a smooth paste, rather small chunks of cauliflower – if cooking them for baby led weaning, the size of which depending on your baby’s age, see note 2 below.
In a bowl, mix the flours and baking powder, add the cauliflower and half the grated cheese and then stir in enough milk to combine to a soft dough.
Place dough on lined baking tray and pat into a circle – about 3cm thick. Then cut into 8 wedges. Separate them slightly then sprinkle with the remaining cheese and place in the oven for 20 minutes, until golden and cooked through.
Cool slightly on tray then put on wire rack to cool completely.
Best eaten the day they are made, they are still nice the next day, and can be reheated in the oven (see notes below) or under the grill.
Flour: Instead of the wholemeal flour use white plain flour. You may need to add slightly less liquid.
Add ins: a pinch of mustard powder, sweet paprika, or some chopped chives would be a great addition.
1.Reheating scones: In an oven at 150˚C/ 300 ˚F for 5-10 minutes, or under the grill. You can also microwave them but be careful not to overheat as this can cause the scones to go rubbery.
Freezing raw scone dough: The scones can be frozen before baking - cook from frozen for 30 minutes.
2. Baby led weaning scones:
- when mashing the cauliflower mash it finely - you don't want any large lumps, but don't make it into a puree.
- these scones soften if left overnight, or give the insides if the outsides are hard and crunchy, depending on babies age.
