  • 220 g self-raising flour
  • ½ tsp fine sea salt
  • 50 g butter
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 120 g cheddar cheese grated
  • A generous handful of wild garlic
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper
  • A good pinch of English mustard powder


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/390°F
  • Sift the flour and salt into a large bowl
  • Rub the butter in until it resembles fine breadcrumbs
  • Stir in the grated cheese and finely chopped wild garlic or chives
  • Add the pepper and mustard and mix
  • Add enough milk to the beaten egg to make it up to 150ml/0.65 cups of liquid
  • Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and pour in the egg/milk mixture
  • Mix to a soft dough with a metal knife
  • Turn onto a floured surface and knead gently and lightly until it is just smooth
  • Press out to a round about 2½cm deep and cut out rounds with a 7cm pastry cutter gathering the scraps together each time, re-rolling and stamping until you have 6 or 7 scones (and maybe a teeny one, Bonus Boy's 'Special')
  • Pop the scones onto a lightly oiled baking sheet, brush the tops with a little milk and bake them for 15 - 20 minutes until well risen and golden brown and your kitchen smells divine
  • Leave to cool on a wire rack or scoff straight from the oven!
