• 2 cups self-raising flour
  • ¾ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 200g grated cheese or feta
  • ½ cup chopped parsley
  • ¼ cup dried onions
  • ½ cup bacon bits
  • ½ cup double strength chilled AlfaLite
  • ½ cup chilled soda water


Preheat oven to 200ºC and line a baking tray with baking paper.
In a mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt and cayenne pepper. Mix in parsley, onions, bacon bits and cheese. In a jug combine AlfaLite and soda water. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the liquid. Mix with a knife until just combined. (if making in a food processor, pulse together the flour, baking powder, salt, cayenne, parsley, onions, bacon bits and cheese to combine. Add soda and AlfaLite, pulsing 4 or 5 times until mixture just starts to come together.) Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and pat into a rough rectangle about 4cm thick. Cut into 6 to 8 pieces or cut into rounds and place on the prepared baking tray. Bake until scones are puffed and golden and they bounce back when pressed (about 15-18 minutes). Serve warm or at room temperature, split open and spread with a little butter. Freeze if not using the same day. When ready to use, thaw and reheat for 5 mins. In an oven preheated to 220ºC.
