These Simple and Tasty Rocket and Parmesan Scones are a perfect savoury snack. They come together quickly and are delicious with soup or a herbed cream cheese.


  • 2 cups self raising flour (plus 1/41/2 cup reserved)
  • 1 cup soda water (250ml)
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp cream (150ml)
  • 20g rocket chopped
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan
  • 1 tbsp milk for brushing


  1. Preheat your oven to 200c and line a baking tray with baking paper
  2. In a large bowl mix in all the ingredients except the reserved flour. The mix will be quite sticky.
  3. On a clean bench, add a thick layer of most of the reserved flour and spoon the mix on top of the flour. Sprinkle some more of the reserved flour over the top of the dough.
  4. Working with your hands, quickly and lightly knead through the flour so the dough becomes more workable. This should only take a minute or so.
  5. Shape the dough into a rectangle about 1.5 cm high and cut into even portions with a knife or scone cutter.
  6. Arrange the scones on the prepared tray and lightly brush each scone with milk.
  7. Bake the scones for 12-15 minutes on high or until the scones are lightly golden and spring back when pressed lightly


To make the herbed cream cheese, take two-three tablespoons of cream cheese and mix through soft herbs such as chives and basil.
