Posh Picnic N° 4: Feta, Sundried Tomato and Olive Scones

I wasn’t so sure how these would go down for the picnic, but I needn’t have worried!

Beautifully salty and tangy, these went down a treat

And with a recipe making so many we were left with lots left over, meaning snacks for the next few days were sorted!


75g feta, cubed

10 black olives, roughly chopped

50g sundried tomatoes, drained of oil and chopped

175g self raising flour

50g wholewheat flour

¼ level teaspoon baking powder

¼ level teaspoon cayenne pepper

¼ level teaspoon mustard powder

2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1½ level teaspoon chopped fresh thyme

1 large egg

2 tablespons milk

for the topping:

milk for brushing,

50g crumbled feta

Preheat oven to gas mark 7/220°c

Sieve the flours and baking powders together and add the cayenne pepper and mustard.

Add the oil and, using a knife, mix it all together

When the mixture looks like lumpy breadcrumbs stir in the feta, olives, sundried tomato and chopped thyme

In a separate bowl beat the egg with the 2 tablespoons of milk and add half of this mixture to the other ingredients.

With your hands, bring the mixture together to form a dough, adding the rest of the egg & milk as you go

What you should end up with is a dough which is soft but not at all sticky.

Roll out onto a floured surface

Remove them to a wire rack to cool

Little bitesize circles of delight

(I’ll let you into a secret… try them dipped in hummus..)
