Serves 8


… 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
… 2 tablespoons sugar
… 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
… 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
… 1/4 teaspoon salt
… 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cold, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

… Honey, for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, stir flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt until mixed. Cut butter into dry ingredients using a fork, until the mix is crumbly.
  3. Add milk to the dry ingredients and stir until loosely mixed. Fold in apple and cheddar until just mixed.
