Preheat the oven to 220 C / Gas 7. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together bread flour, salt and baking powder until thoroughly combined. Beat in the butter, buttermilk and sugar to make a dough; gently mix in the onion and grated cheese.
Divide dough in half and shape each half into a ball. Place the loaves onto the prepared baking tray, and gently flatten to about 5cm thick. Dust each loaf with flour.
Bake in preheated oven until golden brown on top, about 30 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for a few minutes; serve warm.
