Method

  1. Preheat oven to 220ºC (425ºF, gas mark 5) and lightly grease a baking tray.
  2. Mix together the flour and salt, then rub in the butter.
  3. Finely slice the red onion and cook over a medium heat along with the sugar and red wine vinegar until soft. This should take about 5 mins.
  4. Stir in the Camembert, poppy seeds, Dijon mustard, milk and red onions to the flour mixture and form a soft dough.

  7. Place scones on baking tray, brush with milk and bake for 12-15 mins. Best served slightly warm.
