assorted chopped fresh herbs such as sage, chives, tarragon or oregano
each baking powder and baking soda
unsalted butter, cold, finely sliced
Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Extract 1 tbsp (15 mL) juice from the lemon. Stir lemon juice into milk and let stand 5 min. to sour milk. Meanwhile, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Stir in cheese and herbs until well combined.
Cut in butter until crumbly using a pastry blender or two knives. Add the milk mixture and stir just until a ragged dough forms. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead lightly, about 10 times, or until no dry patches remain.
Transfer dough to a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet and pat into a 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick disk. Dust the top of the loaf with a little additional flour and score with a large “X” (about 1/4 inch/5 mm deep) using a sharp paring knife. Bake for 30 min. and a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Transfer to a rack; cool before slicing.
