  1. Preheat oven to 200°C fan bake or 220°C conventional and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Sift self-raising flour, salt and cayenne pepper into a mixing bowl. Stir in the grated cheese. Make a well. Pour in the milk and soda water and mix together to form a soft dough.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a well floured surface. Pat or roll the dough into a rectangle about 2cm thick. Cut dough into 12 pieces. Place on a baking tray.
