Just For Fun – Day 27
This is my favourite recipe which are for drop scones, aka mini pancakes – I chose this one because it was the first thing I learnt to make, ever. I think I made my first batch unaided (but still supervised!) when I was five years old!
They are so easy to make and are ready in minutes. I have them as a snack, for breakfast and as a dessert. You can have any topping on them, butter, lemon and sugar, jam, chocolate spread, peanut butter, lemon curd, maple syrup, even ice-cream! Here is the recipe, if you are a fan of pancakes or anything batter-based then you will love these. 😀
100g (4oz) self-raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
25g (1oz) caster sugar
Pinch of salt
125ml (4fl) milk
Drop of sunflower oil, for greasing
Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl, add the sugar and salt and stir to mix. Make a well in the centre, crack in the egg and whisk, gradually drawing in the flour from the edge. Add the milk gradually, whisking all the time, to form a smooth batter.
Lightly grease a frying pan and warm it over a moderate heat. Drop 3 tablespoons of the batter into the pan, keeping them well apart so they do not stick together. Cook for about 2 minutes or until bubbles appear on the surface and begin to burst and the drop scones are golden underneath, then flip them over and cook on the other side for a minute or until golden on this side as well.
Remove from the pan and serve warm!
