  • 225 g plain flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder

  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 115 g cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 small Bramley apple, peeled, cored and cut into small chunks
  • 150 ml milk

2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt and season with freshly ground pepper.
