|Apologies, this really is an awful picture|
I thought I'd posted a recipe for drop scones (or scotch pancakes) here before but I can't find it so here it is... Heat a griddle on a medium hob - or a heavy based frying pan - giving it plenty of time to get hot. whilst the griddle is heating mix 125 grams of self raising flour, a generous tablespoon of sugar, 3 tablespoons of sunflower or vegetable oil, an egg, and 100 ml's of milk. Pour about a tablespoon, more if you like big pancakes/drop scones, of batter onto the griddle and flip it over when it starts to bubble. They cook fast, it's taken me a ridiculously long time to work out the right temperature for the hob and to stop burning these things. Pile them up and eat them. Do not oil the griddle (or pan) it doesn't need it. The oil in the batter is enough to stop any sticking and the drop scones shouldn't be greasy. When I was a girl we ate these with jam and cream like scones but they're good however you like them. Unfortunately I can't show a picture because we ate all the ones I made tonight.
