Sift the flour, baking powder and 1ml salt into a bowl. Rub in the butter or use a food processor. Stir in the cheese and bacon.

Use a blunt knife to mix in the milk. Don’t overmix; mix just until the ingredients stick together.

Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and pat flat until about 3cm thick. Use a small scone cutter to cut out shapes, or use a knife to cut the scone dough into triangles.

Place onto a greased baking tray and bake in a preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, until golden. Serve warm, spread with butter and extra cheese, if you prefer.
