Preheat the oven to 200°C. Lightly grease a baking sheet and dust it with flour. Shake to remove the excess flour. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. Rub in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the oat bran and sugar, followed by the diced cheese and apple and finally the buttermilk. Take care not to overmix the dough. Shape the dough into a ball on a lightly floured surface and roll out until 2-3 cm thick. Cut out scones with a 4-5 cm cookie cutter and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops with extra buttermilk and bake for 15 minutes or until well risen and brown. Serve with grated cheese and tomato jam or fruit spread.
