  • self-raising flour 200g
  • butter 50g
  • English mustard powder r 1/2 tsp
  • paprika 1/2 tsp
  • cheshire cheese 100g, grated
  • spring onions 4, finely chopped
  • whole milk 100ml
  • egg 1
  • mustard any kind, 1 tsp 


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 220c/fan200c/gas7. Put the flour and butter into a food processor and pulse until the texture of breadcrumbs. Tip into a bowl and stir in the mustard powder, paprika, 75g of the cheese and the spring onions. Season really well and toss everything together.

  • Step 2

    Add the milk gradually and bring together to a soft dough (add another splash of milk if it seems too dry). Tip onto a floured surface and gently pat into a round. Put on a buttered baking sheet and mark into 8 wedges (but don’t go all the way through). Beat the egg with the mustard and a splash of milk and glaze the top. Sprinkle over the rest of the cheese. Bake for about 20-22 minutes until golden and cooked through.
