 Weigh 150 g (1 ¼ cups) self-raising flour into a medium bowl, add ½ tsp baking powder, ¼ tsp cayenne pepper and ¼ tsp mustard powder.
    Add 40 g (3 tbsp) butter cut into small cubes.

Rub the butter through the flour with gentle movements until the mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs. OR use a food processor to combine the ingredients.

Add 50 g (½ cup) finely grated cheese to the flour mixture in the bowl and stir through. OR add to the food processor and pulse just enough to combine.

Bring the mixture together with a blunt knife and once a soft dough begins to form use your hands to form it into a ball. Dust the work surface with a little extra flour and pat out the dough into a flat disk about 2 cm deep.

Use a plain 6 cm (2 ½ in) cutter to cut out four scones. Pat the dough back together gently so you can use all the dough. You may have a little dough left over but not enough for another full scone.

Put a piece of baking parchment in the base of your air fryer and place four scones, spread apart, onto the baking parchment.

Use a pastry brush to brush the tops of the scones with a little extra milk.

Close the air fryer and set to 185C (365F). Bake the scones for 11 minutes.Remove from the air fryer and cool on a cooling rack.
