What you need:

8 oz /225 g self-raising flour
½ tsp salt
1 tsp  mustard powder
½ tsp cayenne pepper
2 oz /50 g softened, salted butter
2 oz /50 g cheddar, grated
1 oz /25 g parmesan cheese ( grated )
150ml whole milk, plus a little to glaze

What to do:

Preheat the oven to 230C /450F / gas mark 8

In a bowl sift the flour, salt, mustard and cayenne pepper .

Cut the butter into pieces and rub it into the flour mixture with your fingertips until you have a mixture that resembles breadcrumbs.

Grate the cheeses and stir them into the flour mixture. Pour all the milk into the bowl with the flour and cheese, and using a fork  bring everything together to make a dough.

Roll the dough out on a floured surface until it is 1cm thick, and cut into rounds with a fluted 6.5cm cutter.

Arrange on a greased baking tray and brush the top of each scone with milk.

Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the scones have risen and are golden.

When cooled cut in half & spread with butter or margarine.

For a change try spreading with soft cheese.
