  • 1 oz unsalted butter needs to be cold
  • 2 oz wholemeal flour
  • 6 oz plain flour
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp cream of tarter
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp mustard powder
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 3 oz cheddar cheese - grated
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp full fat Greek yogurt


  • Rub the butter into the flour and other dry ingredients with your fingertips until the mixture resembls course breadcrumbs.
  • Stir in the cheese, then mix in the egg, yoghurt and enough water to form the mixture into a soft dough (another 1-2 tbsp).
  • Working quickly with your hands, bring the mixture together and form it into a round about 3/4 inch thick. Cut out into 5 rounds (these were large scones, so a medium size cutter would produce 8 or 9).
  • Bake at 200℃ (400℉, Gas 6) for 12 to 15 mins or until the scones are golden and sound hollow when their bases are tapped.
