Step 1

Preheat oven to 180°C fan-forced (356°F). Grease and flour a baking tray.

Step 2

Sift flour, baking powder, cayenne pepper and salt into a large bowl.

Step 3

Add in the butter, using your fingertips rub the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Step 4

Stir in ham, spring onion, parsley, capsicum and 1 cup of the cheese into the flour mixture. Season with salt and pepper then add in the milk.

Step 5

Add the milk all at once. Use a round-bladed knife to mix together using a cutting motion until evenly incorporated and the mixture begins to hold together. If the mixture is too dry add a little more milk until dough reaches desired consistency (soft dough).

Step 6

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for 4-5 minutes until the dough is smooth. Do not over knead the dough. Over working the dough will result in tough scones.

Step 7

Use a lightly floured rolling pin to roll out the dough until it is 2cm thick. Then with a 5cm round pastry cutter cut the scones out of the dough and place each scone on a lightly floured baking tray 1 cm apart. Sprinkle the left over ½ cup tasty cheese on top of the scones.

Step 8

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden and well risen. Transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm with butter.
