Singletrack Kitchen: Charlie’s Cheesy Chilli Cakes & Roasted Red Soup

by and 7

This is a nice winter recipe that will warm you through on one of those ‘can’t feel my toes, but can see my breath’ days. Really, it’s just cheese scones turned up to 11, with cayenne pepper adding a constant warmth throughout, and the red chilli ‘bombs’ keeping you on your toes. The addition of spring onions is a classic Yorkshire allotment tradition. It not only makes it look good, but is also the acceptable face of salad. It also goes splendidly with this simple roasted pepper soup. I pop the soup in a flask, wrap the cakes in foil...

    Having just invested in a rather nice Thermos food flask this sort of thing is on the cards. We have the cutters!

    Shouldn’t you cut the scones out, then sprinkle with cheese and glaze with milk? That way you can re-roll the offcuts of the dough and cut out a couple more.

    @arel Yes that is good advice. Doing it that way you will also get the crispy cheese down the sides.

    I take the leftovers, roll again, and glaze + cheese again. No one has ever complained about having too much cheese in anything ever.

    …and now I have an overwhelming hankering for cheese scones, when I’m trying to be good.

    Curse you Hobbs.

    I just made this. It was more hassle than I would usually give myself in the kitchen, but worth it. Utterly delicious. I confess I put chorizo in the soup as I had some leftover but it was still glorious.
    My scones needed 25mins!
    3 left for tomorrow 😊
