230g self raising flour
Level tsp dry mustard
1 tbsp caster sugar
50g butter
1 tsp fresh thyme
125g grated cheddar cheese

Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F / Gas Mark 4 and lightly grease a 2lb loaf tin.

Mix the flour, mustard and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Rub in the butter using your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Add thyme and grated cheese and mix well.

Add the milk to the beaten egg and add to the dry ingredients. Stir until just moistened – the mixture will be very thick.

Transfer to the prepared loaf tin and bake for 35 to 40 minutes. You will know it is cooked when the underneath is tapped and has a hollow sound.
