Cream cheese bubble bread

Something quick and easy to have with a barbecue or cold meats and salads. You could also serve them with a cup of tea if you like, just treat them like scones. This is one of many recipes cut out of magazines countless years ago and stuck in my trusty, dilapidated recipe book... and then tweaked (of course).

Oven temperature

275g plain flour
5ml sugar
5ml salt
15ml baking powder
Pinch cayenne pepper, paprika or mustard powder (optional)
125g cream cheese (you can use low fat cream cheese, if you like)
80g butter or marg
125ml milk

  • Sift the dry ingredients together into a bowl.
  • Rub in the cheese and butter/marg with your fingers (yes, like Granny used to do!) until the mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs.
  • Stir in the milk and knead lightly.
  • Roll into balls and arrange in a greased, round baking tin, working from the outside in and leaving small gaps (about 1cm) between balls.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes.
These don't keep for long, but I ate one this morning from a batch I made last night and it was fine. So you don't have to throw out any leftovers straightaway ;o)
