Mixed Herbs & Seeds Scones

Mixed Herbs & Seeds Scones

These are everyday scones filled with my favourite herbs and crunchy seeds. They go great with soup or cream cheese.

Ingredients: 8 medium-sized scones

●Cake flour
200 g
●Baking powder
2 teaspoons
●Your choice of finely chopped fresh herbs (rosemary, sage, thyme, basil, etc.)
2-3 tablespoons
Your choice of seeds (I used sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and pine nuts)
2 handfuls
Unsalted butter
50 g
100 ml
Vegetable oil
1 tablespoon
a pinch


1. Sift together the flour and baking powder.
2. Add the ● ingredients to a bowl. Mix them together lightly and then add the butter, cut into small cubes. Rub the mixture together with your fingertips until you get something that looks like panko. Then mix in the seeds.
3. Make a well in the center of the panko and pour in the milk and vegetable oil. Fold the wet ingredients in with a spatula to create a dough.
4. Turn the dough out onto a dusted surface and use your hands to press it into a 15 cm diameter circle that's about 2.5 cm thick. Being careful not to cut all the way through, make 4 cuts in the surface of the dough to create 8 sections.
5. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
6. Lightly brush the tops of the scones with milk and leave them to sit in a warm place for 15 minutes. Then bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
7. The scones are ready. They'll taste especially delicious while they're still warm.
8. I decorated the top of the scones with a few seeds as well as mixing them into the scones themselves in the recipe photo.

Story Behind this Recipe

This is a variation of my "Basic Scones," Recipe ID: 532454. I recently picked some herbs so I combined them with my favourite seeds and made these scones. They're packed full of my favourite things.
