If using a Dutch oven make sure there is enough room in your oven with the lid on first. I have to put my oven rack on the bottom shelf and take out the other shelves to fit mine in.
Pre-heat the oven to 390°F (200°C).
Lightly grease a Dutch oven or baking tray with oil.
Add the baking powder to the flour and mix well.
Cube the butter and add to the flour. Rub the butter into the flour with your hands until fine bread crumbs form.
Add the milk and mix with a spatula initial until dough starts to come together, then switch to using your hands.
Shape the dough into a rough ball.
Put the ball into the Dutch oven or onto the baking tray. Cut two or three shallow lines in a cross/star shape.
If using the Dutch oven put the lid on. Bake in the oven for about 40 mins or until starting to go golden brown and makes a hollow sound when you tap the bottom.
Remove from oven, serve with your favourite toppings and enjoy!
