  • 170g self-raising flour

  • 2 tbsp milk

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 2 pinches cayenne pepper

  • 1/2 tsp mustard powder

  • 3 tbsp buttermilk

  • 1 eggs

  • 30g butter

  • 85g mature cheddar cheese grated


<ol> <li>Sieve the flour, and mix through with the salt, mustard and pepper, then rub in the butter using finger tips.</li> <li>Mix the egg with the buttermilk, then slowly work through the mixture using a knife at first, then a wooden spoon.</li> <li>Roll out on a floured board to about ¾ in thick - too thin and scones will turn out bisuits - cut with circular cutter, paint tops with milk and plonk more grated cheese on top.</li> <li>Place on baking tray and bake 15 minutes in top of oven, at 220C/Gas Mark 7.</li> </ol>
