  1. Preheat the oven to 220˚C/200˚C fan/gas mark 7. Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda, paprika and half of the salt into a mixing bowl. Add the butter and rub it in until crumbly.
  2. Stir in the Cheddar, reserving about one tablespoon for the topping. Stir in the grated onion and chives.
  3. Whisk the milk and vinegar together in a jug, then stir into the mixing bowl.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and quickly shape it into a round. Transfer to a baking tray and cut an X into the top using a long knife.
  5. Sprinkle the reserved Cheddar and remaining salt over the top. Bake in the centre of the oven for 35-45 minutes, or until it is risen and sounds hollow when tapped underneath.
