By GraceK



  • 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


  1. Sieve the flour, and mix through with the salt, mustard and pepper, then rub in the butter using finger tips.
  2. Mix the egg with the buttermilk, then slowly work through the mixture using a knife at first, then a wooden spoon.
  3. 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.
  4. Place on baking tray and bake 15 minutes in top of oven, at 220C/Gas Mark 7.
