Flaky Cheese and bak kwa scones

We still have some bak kwa in the freezer.  This year, we were gifted with many packets of bak kwa.

What you need:

270g plain flour
1 tbsp baking powder
2 tsp sugar
½ tsp salt (add more salt if you are using mild cheese)
100g cold butter, cut into cube

¾ cup cheese
2 slices of bak kwa, chopped fine
180ml cold milk 

1 egg yolk – egg wash

Coarse sugar for sprinkling


Mix plain flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt well.

Add in cold butter.  Using a pastry cutter, cut the cold butter into the flour. 

Add in the cheese and mix well.

Add in the milk bit by bit to mix well until a dough is formed.

Transfer to a floured countertop.

Using your hand form a rectangle.  Cut into half and stack the piece.  

Roll and cut and stack.  Each time does either a horizontal and then a verticle cut and stack.

Until you get 4 layers.  Roll the dough into 1” thick.

Using a cookie cutter, dip into flour and do a straight cut.  

Fold and group the remaining dough again and cut again.

Place into a muffin tray.

Preheat oven to 210℃.

Chill for 10 mins.

Brush with egg wash and sprinkle coarse sugar on top.

Bake 14 – 16 mins.
