Ingredients

1
organic lemon
0
1 cup
organic milk
250 mL
2 1/4 cups
all-purpose flour (approx.)
560 mL
1 cup
shredded old Cheddar cheese
250 mL
1/4 cup
assorted chopped fresh herbs such as sage, chives, tarragon or oregano
60 mL
3/4 tsp
each baking powder and baking soda
4 mL
1/2 tsp
salt
2 mL
2 tbsp
unsalted butter, cold, finely cubed
30 mL

Directions

Step 1
Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Extract 1 tbsp (15 mL) juice from the lemon. Stir lemon juice into milk and let stand 5 min. to sour milk. Meanwhile, blend flour with cheese, herbs, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl until well combined.
Step 2
Cut in butter until crumbly using a pastry blender or two knives. Add the milk mixture and stir just until a ragged dough forms. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead lightly, about 10 times, or until no dry patches remain.
Step 3
Transfer dough to a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet and pat into a 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick disk. Dust the top of the loaf with a little additional flour and score with a large “X” (about 1/4 inch/5 mm deep) using a sharp paring knife. Bake for 30 min. or until golden and a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Transfer to a rack; cool before slicing.
