Ingredients

  • 140g self-raising flour
  • 140g wholemeal flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 50g cold butter, cut into small cubes
  • 85g mature cheddar, grated
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp Marmite
  • 2 tbsp Greek or natural yogurt
  • 3 tbsp milk, plus extra to glaze

Method

  1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Mix the flours and baking powder in a mixing bowl with a pinch of salt, if you like. Add the butter and rub with your fingertips until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs (or use a food processor). Stir in ½ of the cheese and make a well in the centre.

  2. Whisk the remaining ingredients together and pour into the well. With a cutlery knife, bring the mixture together to make a soft, but not sticky dough. Add a little more milk if the dough is too dry.

  3. Turn onto a floured surface, then roll out to about 2cm thick. Stamp out 4 scones using a round cutter, then gather the trimmings and repeat until all the dough has been used. Put on a baking sheet, brush with milk and scatter over remaining cheese. Bake for 10-12 mins until golden. Cool on a wire rack.
