Drop scones/Scotch Pancakes were a favourite in our house when I was growing up. We’d make a batch on shrove Tuesday and have them for supper with butter spread on them – there’d always be too many and we’d reheat them under the grill on the days after.
I tried to make them last year but they were ridiculously sweet and really not very nice. This recipe from The Great British Bake Off book was a lot more successful and I’ll use it again in future.
The recipe is really simple to do. sift the dry ingredients then add the wet and whisk together.
Once mixed, the pancakes are cooked on a griddle for a couple of minutes on each side.
Serve fresh from the griddle with butter on, or keep in tupperware and lightly toast before buttering.
