- Into a mixing bowl sift flour, baking powder and salt. Rub butter into the flour to a sandy texture.
- Add cheddar, jalapenos, pumpkin or sunflower seeds, and a good grind of black pepper. Mix to combine.
- Make a well in the dry ingredients, add buttermilk and soda water and mix together to form a soft dough.
- Tip dough on a floured surface and gently press into a square shape. Cut into individual scones and place on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Sprinkle scones with a little more finely grated cheese, and bake in a 220C oven until golden, about 20-25 minutes.
