Vegemite cheese scones

I blame it on Vegemite Chocolate.  One minute I enjoyed the occasional dab of Vegemite on a crumpet, but now I have become obsessive.  Even afternoon tea baking features Vegemite.

Yesterday, Liz from BizzyLizzy’s Good Things asked my opinion about Vegemite chocolate. Being frugal, I admitted I had not raced out to try to find a supermarket that still had it in stock at inflated prices.  I was interested, but not that interested.  But after Liz dared me, ever so politely, I decided to put Vegemite and chocolate to the test.

Now I am craving Vegemite.  And I have developed a liking for Vegemite and cheese scones.

My Nana always used to make cheese scones for her famous morning teas she held for her favourite neighbours.  I have such a sweet tooth, but sometimes it is nice to have a savoury option.  These are quick and easy to make, and also exceptionally frugal.  Just the thing for afternoon tea.

Ingredients

2 cups self-raising flour
1 tablespoon butter
1 egg
milk, to mix (around 1/2 cup or so)
Vegemite
grated tasty cheese

Method

  1. Rub the butter into the flour.  Add the egg and milk, and mix until a soft dough forms (do not overmix).
  2. Pat into a 2cm square, and then cut into rounds with a floured cutter (or glass).
  3. Gently spread on Vegemite.  These scones are quite doughy, so it is difficult to spread them evenly.  Top with grated cheese.

  4. Bake in a hot oven at around 200C for ten minutes.  Enjoy while hot.
