Bacon cakes
Lovely savoury scone like cakes with crisp smoked bacon.

3 rashers smoked streaky bacon

225g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting

25g butter, cold and cut into small pieces

75g mature cheddar, grated

150ml milk, plus 2 tbsp extra

1 tbsp tomato ketchup

½ tsp Worcestershire sauce

Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F / Gas mark 4.

Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and set aside.

Heat grill to high and grill the bacon for 10 minutes, turning halfway, until crisp.

Cool for a few minutes.

Sift the flour and ½ teaspoon of salt into a bowl, add the butter then rub between your fingers into the texture of fine breadcrumbs.

Break the bacon into small pieces and add to the bowl with a third of the cheese.

Mix the milk, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl and pour into the bacon mixture, stirring briefly, to make a soft dough.

Flour a work surface, turn the dough out and shape into an 18cm round.

Brush with milk, then cut into 8 wedges

Place the wedges on the baking tray and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.

Bake for 20-30 minutes or until risen and golden brown, and serve warm.
