In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, bicarbonate of soda, salt and raisins.


Chop the butter into small cubes and grate the Cheddar cheese. Reserve a small handful of grated cheese to sprinkle on the top of the bread. Add the remaining cheese and butter into the mixture and toss through.


In a small separate bowl, whisk the egg, yoghurt, thyme and honey together and add to the flour mixture.


Using your hands, knead the mix together until a soft dough forms.


Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead 3-4 turns or until it comes together and is slightly smooth. Shape into a ball, place into a greased bowl and cover it. Place the dough in the fridge for 1 hour.


Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6, and remove the dough from the fridge.


Place on a lightly greased baking tray and score 1cm deep on the top into a cross using a sharp knife. Sprinkle extra cheese over the top.


Bake for 50-55 minutes or until baked through.
