Following on from the success of my Lo-Dough Cream Tea blog post I just had to make a savoury version that would perfectly complement the fruit scones in the Cream Tea blog and be a perfect partner for serving Afternoon Tea the healthy way!
There’s nothing better than a freshly baked Cheese Scone warm and dripping with a little butter – oh yes, go on, put a tsp of butter on!
Ken insisted on having a little Piccalilli in his, hence the serving suggestion above!
This recipe is not complex, not difficult, not hard to remember and only contains very basic ingredients – in fact the easiest part is the cooking !
The most important ingredient – Lo-Dough!
Lo-Dough – the revolutionary low carb bread alternative that just about covers all dietary requirements from gluten free, sugar free, high fibre, low carb etc. This product is so amazingly versatile that I will never just look at it as a wrap – it’s so much more!

To make Lo-Dough Cheese Scones in minutes you will need
Baking tray lined with Baking paper
Ingredients – recipe makes 2 scones (I made 4 by doubling up on the ingredients)
1 piece of Lo-Dough blitzed into crumb
1 large egg
1 heaped tbsp Fat free Greek yoghurt – I used Fage Total 0%
30gms grated cheese – I used full fat
1/2 tsp salt
Pre heat oven to Gas 6, Electric. 200 , Fan 180
Mix your Lo-Dough crumb, egg, salt, and 2/3 of the cheese with the yoghurt until thoroughly combined.
Press the mixture into your microwaveable mug and smooth level with the back of a spoon
Place in the microwave for two minutes. Cool for 30 seconds then turn onto a flat surface Slice into two horizontally and place your ‘scone’ cut side down onto the tray covered with baking paper. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese
Place in the oven for 5-10 mins until the outside of your scone dries and firms up. Remove from oven.
Enjoy whilst still warm. Delicious!
