Ingredients

  • 450g plain flour, extra for dusting
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 25g chilled and diced Kerrygold Salted Butter
  • 225 ml buttermilk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 150 g cheddar, grated

Directions

1.    Heat up the oven to 220°C. Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda into a mixing bowl. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

2.    Add in your grated cheese.

3.    Dig a little well in the centre and pour in the buttermilk and beaten egg. With a tablespoon, quickly but gently stir in the liquid until it’s soft but not sticky.

4.    Dust down your work surface with some flour. Turn the dough out and pat into a circle about 2.5cm (1in) thick.

5.    With a cutter or sharp knife, carve up the dough into 5 cm (2in) shapes.

6.    Pop the scones onto a nonstick baking sheet and brush the tops with the beaten egg.

7.    Bake for 10 - 15 minutes until they rise to a delicious shade of golden brown.

8.    Leave to cool for at least 10 minutes on a wire rack, then serve up with Kerrygold!
