Bear is up and down - normal for a lad of nearly nine who I suspect has a strong cold. At the moment the only food we are coaxing in to him are drop scones. Not only is bear refusing chocolate and other sugar filled goodies, but I only tried this recipe yesterday.
For those who know these things, you beat up 125g (four and one half ounces)of self raising flour (gluten free for me) with 2 teaspoons of sugar, an egg, a tablespoon of melted butter and 5 fluid ounces (150ml) of milk to a batter and drop tablespoons onto a griddle, cooking both sides. The full recipe is here.
I may have a go at varying this with spices at some point, but I am quite enjoying them. I have made four batches so far today. Bear hasn't got fed up. I'll keep going.
