Plaited Herb Scone Loaf

Scones don't just come in little balls of dough... I love this savoury scone loaf recipe filled with delicious herbs.

Plaited Herb Scone Loaf


  • 3 cups self-raising flour
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 60g butter
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 1 teaspoon chilli paste (optional)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • Chopped fresh or dried mixed herbs to taste
  • Coarse salt for topping

Stir together flour, sugar and salt.  In a small saucepan, heat butter with garlic and chilli paste until butter melts.  Discard garlic.

Beat egg in measuring jug.  Stir in enough milk to measure 1 1/4 cups liquid.  Stir in chives and herbs.

Add garlic butter and milk mixture to flour; mix lightly until moistened.  Knead gently - a few strokes - on lightly floured surface.

Divide dough into 3 equals pieces.  Shape each into a rope, then plait togather into a loaf, folding ends under.

Place in a greased standard loaf tin (or 2 small bar tins).  Sprinkle with coarse salt, if desired.

Bake on a centre shelf at 200 celsius for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool slightly in tin, turn out and cool completely on wire rack.

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz,
