Drop scones, Dropped scones, Scotch pancakes...

...whatever you like to call them they are very easy to make and very very simple. In honour of my impending visit to the scottish capital and with some tennis tournament finishing today, who's playing again? I decided to crack out the frying pan (sorry traditionalists, I don't have a griddle/girdle) and make a very tasty sunday breakfast (again sorry traditionalists, I'm hungry and not waiting until teatime) with some left over english strawberries and a delicious Scottish heather honey.

Ingredients (makes about 10)
80g SR Flour
20g Caster Sugar
1/2tsp Baking powder
1 small egg
100ml milk

Weigh out the flour, sugar and baking powder into a bowl
Make a well in the centre and crack the egg into it.
Add half the milk and whisk well.
Add the remaining milk a bit at a time until it reseambles thick cream.
Heat a frying pan or griddle pan and lightly grease with oil.
Add a tablespoon of mix and spread gently around, not to thinly.
Once bubbles appear in the top then flip over and cook the other side for about 30 seconds.
Repeat until all mixture is used up.

Smother with toppings and enjoy.


  1. Perfect tennis-y related breakfast- did you enjoy with a glass of Pimms?!

  2. love them... whatever they're called!

  3. I make american pancakes a lot, but i never weigh the ingredients. I use 4 heaped dessert spoons of flour per egg and then milk to leave it thick enough not to spread out.

    are 4 heaped spoons close to 120g? They look pretty similar. Very tasty but a bit unhealthy with enough butter and maple syrup.
