Drop Scone Day

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.

  1. They do say to feed a cold, so, sounds like you are doing the right thing. I am not familiar with the term "drop scones", but reading the recipe, it sounds a lot like American pancakes. :)
