The key to good scones is to mix them quickly, don’t over mix. Make sure the oven is hot and get them straight into the oven
- 2 rounded cups of flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 50g (1.76oz) butter
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 cup (100g/3.52oz) grated tasty cheddar cheese
- 1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 220 C/428 F
Sift flour and salt in a bowl, rub in butter until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir through the baking powder and then 1/2 cup of cheese.
Make a well in the centre and add milk, mixing quickly with a knife to form a soft dough.
Tip dough onto a lightly floured board and pat or roll into a rectangle. Cut into shapes and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Place on a baking tray and cook for 12 minutes until golden.
