175g / 6 Odlums Coarse Wholemeal
175g / 6oz Odlums Self Raising Flour
1 level teaspoon Baking Powder
2 tablespoons Brown Sugar
75g / 3oz Cheddar Cheese (grated)
Salt & Pepper
150ml / 1/4 pint Beer (approx)
2 tablespoons Sunflower Oil
1 teaspoon Mustard


  1. Lightly dust a griddle pan or heavy frying pan with flour.
  2. Add the flour, baking powder, sugar, cheese, salt and pepper to a mixing bowl. Mix well.
  3. In a jug, beat the beer, sunflower oil and mustard together. Add to the dry ingredients.
  4. Stir mixture until all the ingredients are well blended and form a soft dough. You may have to add about 2 extra tablespoons of beer.
  5. Turn onto a lightly floured board and gently knead. Shape dough into a 20cms/8″ round.
  6. Transfer to the preheated griddle. Score dough into wedges with a sharp knife. Cook for about 20 minutes turning frequently.
  7. Separate into wedges and serve warm with butter.

Recipe Notes:

Ideal accompaniment with salads, delicious with soup or used in open faced sandwiches.
If preferred, you can use ginger ale instead of the beer.
