  Baking powder 1 Teaspoon

  Mustard powder 1⁄2 Teaspoon

Directions

GETTING READY
1 Preheat the oven.

MAKING
1 In a mixing bowl, sift the flours.
2 Add in the bran remaining in the sieve, mustard powder, salt and one good pinch of cayenne pepper; mix well.
3 Gently rub in the butter using your fingertips, until the mixture is crumbly.
4 Add in most of the grated cheese, reserving about 1 tablespoon.
5 In a small bowl, beat the egg together with 2 tablespoons of milk.
6 Add this to the mixing bowl to prepare a soft dough; add just a few more drops of milk if it is too dry.
7 On a floured surface, roll out the dough to a thickness of about 3/4 inch (2 cm).
8 Use a 2 1/4 inch cutter (6 cm) to cut out the scones.
9 Arrange the scones on the baking sheet, brushing the tops with milk.
10 Sprinkle the remaining grated cheese over the top of each scone, with a faint dusting of cayenne.
11 Bake on a high shelf for 15-20 minutes.
12 Transfer to a wire tray to slightly cool.

SERVING
13 Serve warm.
