A big cheese scone ring

I felt like baking something savoury, like cheese scones, but instead of making individual ones (like you are supposed to do with scones) I made a cheese scone ring, it was soft and delicious, especially when still warm from the oven, cut in slices and served with butter. A great afternoon snack for a rainy day, when it is nice to have the oven on and the kitchen warm and smelling of baking.


1 egg plus 3 eggs yolks
200 g self raising flour
100 g grated cheese (like Edam)
1 pinch dried mixed Italian herbs (rosemary, sage, parsley, thyme)
1 cup milk
Salt to taste

Mix all the ingredients and pour into a ring tin greased with butter. Bake at 180°C until the top is golden and the "big scone" is shrinking away from the edges of the tin.

  1. Mi piace moltissimo!!!
    E' bello da vedere, semplice da fare e di certo ottimo.
    Grazie per l'idea :-)

    1. Facile di sicuro, ci vuole meno tempo che a fare gli scones individuali.

  2. I love this cheese scone ring look amazing!!

  3. It looks really beautiful and sounds simply delicious - I LOVE those ingredients - especially the use of fresh herbs - it makes SUCH a difference!

  4. I used dried herbs here (it is winter) but fresh would be good too, maybe need a bit more though (dried herbs are quite strong in flavor!).

  5. Comwe mi attira questa corona al formaggio!
    L'idea di farne una versione da tagliare a fette mi sembra ottima e sono sicura che è ottima con qualunque accompagnamento!

    1. e anche da sola per merenda (anche se mio marito, da bravo 'Anglo' ci spalma il burro!)

  6. anellone meraviglioso :) mi fai venire un appetito incredibile Alessandra!
