Auckland Anne's Yummy Cheese Scones

My friend Anne, from Auckland, made this recipe for morning tea for me & another friend when we visited her & her sick husband a couple of years ago. Anne gave us both this recipe, & although the scones turn out lovely & soft for me, the same didn't happen for my friend. Likewise with a few people I've passed the recipe onto. And I'm NO scone cook!! Strangely though, when I've doubled the recipe to make a bigger batch, the scones don't turn out as good as a single mix.
This recipe takes less than 5 minutes to mix together, doesn't need to be rolled out & cut into shapes, & 10 minutes to cook. I have a fan-bake oven, so I don't know how the recipe would turn out in a conventional oven.
