  • Sift the flour, salt, cayenne pepper, and baking powder into a large bowl. Mix the ensure the ingredients are well combined
  • Add the cubed butter to a bowl and combine with your fingers until you’ve made breadcrumbs
  • Add 100g of your grated cheese into the mixture and mix with fingers until well combined
  • Make a well in the centre of the mixture. Pour the milk until you have a firm but soft dough. Do not pour all the milk at once as you may not need it to get the ideal dough
  • Lightly flour a surface and roll out the dough until it is around 2cm thick. Cut out the scones using a medium biscuit cutter or a glass. 
  • Place the scones onto a baking sheet and glaze with milk. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of the scones and place in the oven
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and leave to cool
