  • 225g self-raising flour

  • 150ml milk

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1/2 red onion finely chopped

  • 55g butter

  • 1 pinch ground black pepper (to taste)

  • 50g mature cheddar cheese grated


<ol> <li>Heat the oven to 220C/Gas Mark 7. Lightly grease baking tray</li> <li>Mix together the flour, salt and rub in the butter.</li> <li>Add in the cheese, onion and pepper, then slowly add enough milk to get a soft dough.</li> <li>Turn on to a floured work surface and knead, lightly. Roll out using a rolling pin until about 2cm thick, depending on how large you want your scones, I use a 5cm/2in cutter to make the scones.</li> <li>Lightly knead together the rest of the dough and stamp out more scones until you have used it all up.</li> <li>Brush the tops of the scones with a little milk. Bake for 12-15 minutes until risen and golden.</li> <li>Cool on a wire rack.</li> </ol>

Handy Hint

<p>My daughter makes these for her lunchbox, she likes them really cheesy, so we always add a bit more cheese and if you don't like onion omit it. <br />Also with the milk, if you add too much and found it has gone too sticky add some more flour.</p>
