  • In a small fry pan, heat oil and stir onions. Cook on medium-high heat, stirring for about 3 minutes, then scrape onto a plate to cool.
  • Preheat oven 200°c and lightly oil a medium or large baking sheet.
  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt & pepper and basil. Cut butter into small pieces and drop into dry mix. Cut into the dry mix until you have little pellets.
  • Stir in parmesan. Make a well in dry and stir in milk to make a dense but still soft mass.
