These scones are amazing, they melt in your mouth, so soft and tasty, one of the best creations in my kitchen. You can make your own filling, this was my first time using bacon in dough and I wondered afterwards, why the hell I don't use it more often! So, I know that to many of you, dough and kneading dough is considered as heavy. Nope. I recommend using mixer with dough sticks in the beginning and when dough turns into a ball, just knead it with your hand for 5 more minutes.

  • 200 ml of milk (4/5 cup_
  • 50 ml of sour cream (1/5 cup)
  • 4 tablespoons oil
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cube of yeast (40 g or 2 bags of dry yeast)
  • about 500 g flour (17.5 oz)
  • half a spoonful of baking powder
  • half a cube of softened margarine/butter
  • 1 egg yolk and sesame seeds for sprinkling
  • 300 g finely chopped smoked bacon (10.5 oz)
  • 200 g of grated cheese (7 oz)
  • optional: tomato sauce
  1. Dissolve yeast in the warm milk with 1 tbsp sugar.
  2. Add sour cream, oil, salt, egg white, baking powder to this solution and gradually add about 450 g of flour and knead the dough. If needed add more flour, I used exactly 500 g of flour for this amount. The dough should be soft and non-sticky. You can use mixer with dough sticks and later knead with hands.
  3. After dough is finely kneaded and soft, allow it to stand for 40 minutes, covered with kitchen towel.
  4. Then divide it into 8 parts.
  5. Take one part, spread it out in a small crust on a floured surface and coat it with margarine. Take another part, spread it to the same size and place it on top of the first crust. Using a rolling pin, gently spread a rectangular peel the length of the baking pan. 
  6. Coat with margarine and place a quarter of the filling. 
  7. Wrap in roll. Cut the roll into 6 pieces and place in a baking tray (coated with baking paper) to bake. Repeat the same with the remaining 6 pieces of dough and the resulting 3 rolls.
  8. Coat with egg yolk, sprinkle with sesame seeds and place one slice of margarine on each slice.
  9. Allow them to stand for 30 minutes and bake at 180 C (350 F) degrees for about half an hour.
