3 cups flour
4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
pinch cayenne pepper
1/2 cup grated cheddar
about 1 cup milk
Sift dry ingredients, add cheese. Mix to a light dough with the milk.
Turn out onto a floured board and pat (or roll) out. Cut. Place on
an oven tray. Put some more grated cheese on each scone. 10 minutes
at 425F (215C).
Sometimes I like to put 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of curry powder in the
scone. Really brings out the cheese flavour.
