I would certainly recommend that you use really good carrots to get the best taste. Use home grown or locally grown carrots rather than the supermarket offerings, as they are always tastier and may not be any more expensive. If you would like some tips on making pastry see How To Make Pastry. Just remember to keep the pastry cool and handle gently. ‘Resting’ the pastry for half an hour makes a huge difference too, when it comes to rolling out the pastry. Cranks Recipe Book – Still Popular This recipe for Cranks Cheese Scones is a real blast from the past! My mum, whose old Cranks cookbook I now have, used to bake these all the time. We love these very cheesy scones, and I often bake them to accompany soups, stews and casseroles in place of bread. Use any strong cheese you have to hand. Smoked cheese works very well as does a mixture of flavoured cheese and plain Cheddar. Stir in 225g of the grated cheese and sufficient milk from the 300mls to give soft manageable dough.

From buns, I moved on to flans or quiches made with wholemeal flour pastry and I often cooked a version with cheese and leeks at home. How absolutely delicious do those scones look Karen? Well I’ll tell you, absolutely marvellous. As you know I’m a big fan of Cranks and I’m so sad they closed their last eatery a couple of years or more ago now. But their cookery books remain – hooray. And lovely to bake something your mum made so often too. Forgotten the title or the author of a book? Our BookSleuth is specially designed for you.

Sprinkle with parsley (or other herb if you like) and eat.

I know what it is to lead a busy life and to want great meals without spending too much time in the kitchen. Located in Carnaby Street, it was positioned on what was about to become the most happening location in the world, and even became part of the street’s great draw. Office workers, health-food fiends and even the Beatles were customers, serving themselves salad from large wooden bowls. The rustic plates were exactly the kind you’d expect to see in the hands of today’s hot young chefs at the latest new-Nordic-inspired restaurants. If you love cheese scones, than today’s recipe for Cranks Cheese Scones is a winner. Although they have no eggs as a rising agent, they are lovely and light and extremely cheesy. 2 tablespoons of baking powder may seem like a lot, and I must admit to being sceptical about the amount, but you really cannot taste it once they are baked.

Hi I'm Penny. I created Penny's Recipes to share my favourite simple, fresh and economical recipes for you to cook. Today’s recipe is a slightly adapted version of the Cranks cheese roll: I remember both eating these at the restaurant and cooking them from the book, stuffed with cress, which added a welcome, fresh, light-green aspect. It might have been these buns that gave me a taste for the slightly nutty flavour of wholemeal flour. Of all the recipes in the Cranks Recipe Book, I think today’s Cranks Cheese Scones, and the Cheese Baps are the most popular. And not just for home bakers, but they were both extremely popular in all of the Cranks restaurants and shops too. This is a really simple and low cost meal and yet is so tasty and easy to prepare too! If you like carrots, you will love this recipe!
