Drop Scones

These scones are cooked direct on the hotplate on a simmering to moderate heat. They are also known as Scotch Pancakes, Griddle Scones, Crempogs or just plain Pancakes!


115g (4 oz) self raising flour

25g (1 oz) caster sugar

1 egg

150ml (¼ pint) milk

To serve:

Maple syrup or honey or spread with butter


1. Place the flour and sugar into a basin, mix together.

2. Make a well in the centre and add the egg and half the milk. Whisk together, adding the remainder of the milk to make a smooth batter.

3. Lightly oil the Simmering Plate with a little oil on a piece of kitchen paper.

4. Drop tablespoonfuls of the mixture onto the surface. Cook one side then flip over and cook the other.

5. Keep warm in a clean tea towel and serve with maple syrup or honey, warmed at the back of the AGA – or you can spread them with softened butter.
