Scone Mixture 

2 cups (150g) self-raising flour
1 tsp salt
a pinch of cayenne pepper
60g butter, diced
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1  egg, lightly beaten
3/4 cup (185ml) milk


125g (4 oz) salami, ham or corned beef, finely diced
2–3 gherkins, finely diced
2 tsp melted butter
2 tsp finely chopped parsley
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 tbsp tomato sauce
1 tsp Dijon mustard
Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Preheat the oven to 190°C. Lightly grease a baking tray or line with baking savoury scone ring paper.

Sift the flour, salt and cayenne into a bowl.Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs and stir in the cheese.

Mix the egg and milk; reserve about 1 tablespoon of this mixture and use a knife to stir the remainder into the flour mixture to form a dough .

Pat dough out to a rectangle about 30cm x 20cm.

To make the filling, mix the ingredients together and spread over the dough. Roll up from a long side and form into a ring, pressing the ends together to join.

Cut two-thirds of the way through the ring at 3cm intervals and pull the slices a little way apart. Brush with the reserved egg and milk.

Place on the prepared baking tray and bake for 30–35 minutes. Serve warm.
