What’s the serving size?

Serves 8


What do I need?

  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 cup tasty cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/3 cup ham, chopped
  • 2 tbsp chives, finely chopped

How do I make it?

  1. Preheat oven to 220C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, garlic powder and salt in a large bowl. Add butter and use your fingers to work the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
  3. Stir in milk, cheese, ham and chives using a knife until a dough forms.
  4. Lightly flour a work surface and turn the dough out. Knead until it comes together and then roll out into a circle about 20 centimetres round. Cut circle into 8 wedges and place the wedges onto the baking tray.
  5. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until lightly browned and firm to the touch.
