These are brilliant if you don’t have an oven, but be sure to use a heavy based such as cast iron so you get a lovely crisp outer to the scone. However if you prefer these can be baked in a 200°C oven for 15-20 minutes.

  • 375g (2½ cups) self raising flour

  1. Sift the flour, salt and smoked paprika into a bowl. Rub in the butter, then stir in the cheese and spring onions.

  3. Tip onto a lightly floured bench and shape gently into a round 2 cm thick and large enough to fit your frying pan (ideally around 24-16 cm in size). Cut into 8 wedges.
  4. Heat the frying pan over a medium heat and add the oil. Add the wedges, then reduce the heat.
