Ingredients (Serves 12)

  • 510 grams plain flour
  • 2.25 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1.5 teaspoon Colman's Mustard Powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 65 grams diced butter
  • 380 grams grated cheddar
  • 4.5 tablespoon finely chopped chives
  • 300 millilitres semi-skimmed milk
  • 1 egg yolk

Method

  • Preheat your oven to 220c.

  • Sieve the flour, Colman's mustard powder and baking powder together.

  • Rub in the diced butter till the mixture resembles fine bread crumbs.

  • Add the grated cheddar & chives to the flour mix, then gradually add the milk until you have a soft but not wet dough, all the milk may not be required.

  • On a floured surface roll out to 2.5cm thickness. Cut out scones with a 50mm ring. Re roll left over pieces. Remember to handle and rework your dough as little as possible. This gives the best rise and texture.

  • Bake in oven at 220c for 12-14 minutes. For the last 5 minutes brush with and egg wash (1 egg yolk beaten with a pinch of Colman's mustard powder)

  • Leave to cool on wire rack for 10 minutes. Enjoy as part of a delicious afternoon tea!
