Ras el Hanout Scones

If you feel like having the delicious aroma of home baked goods fill your house, this recipe is the way to go. You don’t have to be a baking expert to make these, it’s super easy!  The scones are delicious when served with butter, eggs, avocado, feta, goat cheese, or anything else you can think of.


  • 12oz all purpose flour, and a little bit more for dusting
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp ras el hanout
  • 3 ½ oz butter cut into cubes
  • 5oz grated parmesan plus a little more for the finish
  • 6 fl. oz milk (175 ml)
  • ⅛ tsp lemon juice
  • 1 egg for glazing


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F and place a baking tray with baking paper on it in the oven, so it preheats as well
  2. Sieve the flour, baking powder and ras el hanout into a large bowl and mix well using a spoon
  3. Add the butter and mix until there are crumbs. Use a food processor if you have one, or you can go old school and mix with your hands
  4. Mix in the cheese
  5. Add the milk and lemon juice to the flour mixture, and stir everything quickly using a regular knife in a large bowl until everything feels uniformly mixed
  6. Use your hands to make a ball from the dough. Knead a few times until the dough feels nice and smooth
  7. Sprinkle a little flour over a work surface and flatten the dough ball with a rolling pin into a 1” thick circle. Cut the circle into 8 pieces
  8. Beat the egg and brush the tops of the scones with it. Finish by sprinkling some grated parmesan
  9. Place the dough scones on the preheated baking tray and return to the oven. Bake for 10-15 minutes until lightly golden on top
