Ingredients

  • 250g self-raising flour, plus extra to dust
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 50g cold butter, diced
  • 175ml buttermilk
  • 125g Stilton, cut into 1cm cubes
  • 100g walnuts, roughly chopped

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/fan 200°C/gas 7. Place the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt in a large bowl. Add the butter, then using your fingertips, rub into the flour. Stir in the buttermilk, cheese and walnuts and very lightly knead to make a soft dough.
  2. Roll out into a large sausage, then cut into 8 rough rounds. Transfer to a non-stick baking sheet, dust with flour and bake for 15–20 minutes, until risen and golden brown. Serve warm with the soup.
