Rub the flour, salt, baking powder and butter together in a mixing bowl until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the Grana Padano, then fold in 600ml of the milk until incorporated. Cover with cling film and place in the fridge for 20 minutes to rest
  • 900g of self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 3 tbsp of baking powder
  • 230g of unsalted butter
  • 270g of Grana Padano, finely grated
  • 700ml of whole milk
Preheat an oven to 180°C/gas mark 4
Lightly flour a work surface and roll out the scone dough until roughly 2–2.5cm thick. Use a 5cm round cutter to stamp out as many scones as you can (do not twist the cutter as you push it into the dough). You should be left with around 20 scones
Place the scones on a baking tray lined with baking paper, ensuring there is a gap between each of them. Mix the egg yolks with the final 100ml of milk and use a pastry brush to liberally brush the top of each scone
Bake the scones for 8–10 minutes until golden. Serve with charcuterie or other fillings of your choosing (they're also very tasty on their own)
