Scrumptious Wensleydale Scones
Whet your appetite with these super simple and delicious Wensleydale Scones. Wensleydale cheese is Yorkshire through and through, so much so that it has a Protected Geographical Indication certificate from the European Union! This unique and flavoursome cheese is the creation of French monks that settled in Lower Wensleydale during the 1150’s, and people all over the world have been enjoying it ever since. Moving with the times, this cheesy scone recipe will have you coming back for bite after bite.
400g self-raising flour
80g butter (chilled and cut into cubes)
150g Wensleydale (grated)
1 tsp English mustard powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
200ml warm milk
As with most recipes, step one is to preheat the oven to 220C/fan200C/gas7. If you do forget or simply just like to live on the edge, the BI64211PB’s convenient 5-minute preheat feature has got your back. Just wait for the light and sound signal to alert you that the temperature has been reached and pop the food right in.
In a food processor add the flour and butter along with ½ tsp salt. Pulse until the mix looks like breadcrumbs.
Take the mix to a large bowl and add in the cheese, mustard and cayenne. Slowly add the milk to form a soft dough.
Top Tip: Make sure not to over knead the dough or your scones will be tough, and nobody wants tough scones ruining Yorkshire Day
On a floured workspace, gently pat out the dough and cut into rounds or diamonds depending on your preference.
Brush with milk and since you can never have too much cheese, add a generous sprinkle of grated Wensleydale.
Cook for 6-8 minutes until perfectly golden. Why not use the Air Fry Mode on the BI64211PB for perfectly crispy results? Just take them out and they’re ready to enjoy.
Your Perfect Yorkies
Nothing beats a warm and hearty roast dinner, and they’re a Yorkshire crowd favourite. Whichever meat does it for you, no roast is complete without warm, buttery Yorkshire Pudding’s crowning the side of the plate. Here’s a tantalizing recipe to try at home that will definitely keep everyone satisfied. But we won’t judge if you opt for frozen Yorkies, which will be just as crispy thanks to the BI64211PB’s Frozen Bake mode.
150g plain flour, sifted
oil or dripping
a good pinch of salt
Once again, make sure your oven is preheated to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. This step is easy to forget when the thought of Yorkies is hot on your mind, that’s why the BI64211PB’s convenient 5-minute preheat feature is a total game changer.
Next, sift the flour into a bowl and make a well in the centre by gently pushing the flour out. Then, stir in the eggs and milk until the batter is smooth. Make sure to season with a good pinch of salt!
Now place an empty tray into the oven for 3 minutes to heat up. After this, remove them and add a drop of olive oil or dripping. Keep in the oven until you see that the oil is smoking hot.
Add in the batter so the tins are half full and pop back into the oven to cook for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, turn the oven down to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4 and cook for a further 10 minutes.
Thanks to Even Bake technology, hot air will move equally across all five levels, so you can avoid soggy bottoms and burnt tops at all costs.
At the end of the time, you should have lovely warm Yorkshire Pudding’s waiting for you! Plus, for your roast trimmings, the Steam Add function will give you amazingly steamed veggies in a flash. How quick and simple?
Did you know one of Hisense’s influencers, @raisingyoungone’s, also tried out the amazing idea of sweet Yorkies for us? One way to enjoy them is by coating in melted butter and dusting with sugar and cinnamon. Really, top it off by filling it with custard! @raisingyoungone’s also tried a Nutella, squirty cream and strawberry combo, which went down a treat. Finally, keep the fruit theme going with a mixed fruit option simply dusted with icing sugar. Whether you try these suggestions or innovate your own, you’ll have amazingly cooked Yorkshire Pudding’s thanks to the cutting-edge Steam Add feature in the BI64211PB. With this setting, harness the power of steam so your puds rise effortlessly to perfection.

400g rhubarb (chopped into 3cm pieces)

to serve fresh custard
For this recipe, preheat the oven to 180/fan 160C/gas 4 and if you’re in a hurry make use of the BI64211PB’s convenient 5-minute preheat feature here.
Place the rhubarb, spices, sugar, and orange zest in a pan. Cook them gently until they’re all soft to the touch. Allow to cool slightly and add them to your baking tray.
In a separate bowl rub together the flour and butter until the mix resembles breadcrumbs. Then you can stir in the oats, cinnamon, and sugar.
Loosely spoon this mix on top of the fruit.

Bake the crumble for 20-30 minutes or until the top is crisp and golden. Here would be the perfect time to activate the Gratin Function, which uses a high-powered grill to make your crumble extra crunchy on top.
We recommend serving with custard, but feel free to crumble your way.
