For the baking mix:

•  Knead the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder together.

•  Cut the butter into small cubes and add to the flour mixture.

•  Mix the ingredients with your hands until the mixture becomes crumbly. The quantities mentioned should yield approximately three cups of baking mix.

For the biscuit batter:

•  Preheat oven to 200oC

•  Add cold butter to the baking mix and knead.

•  Add cheese, garlic and milk and mix with bare hands or a spoon, with as low disruption as possible.

•  Scoop out tablespoons full of the biscuit batter and place them on an ungreased baking tray, leaving at least one inch of space between the scoops to allow the biscuits to spread while baking.

•  Bake for approximately 10 – 12 minutes, until the top of the biscuits starts to turn golden brown.

For the butter glaze:

•  While the biscuits are in the oven, prepare the glaze by melting the butter and adding garlic and parsley. Stir to make a creamy mixture.

•  Glaze the biscuits with this mixture while they are fresh out of the oven and piping hot. Your cheddar bay biscuits are now ready to serve!
