Scotch pancakes

Scotch pancakes, sometimes called drop scones, are made by dropping the batter onto a hot griddle. They are made from flour, eggs, sugar, buttermilk or milk, . They are delicious served with fruit or jam at teatime.

Ingredients :-

225 g self-raising flour
25 g sugar
40 g melted butter
1  egg
250 ml milk or  ½ milk + ½ buttermilk
2 tsp  oil

Sift the flour into a mixing bowl and stir in the sugar. Make a well in the centre and add the egg, melted butter and enough of the milk to make a  thick, lump-free batter, gradually whisk in the remaining milk until it is all smooth.

Place a heavy based, non-stick frying pan or a griddle pan on the heat and add a few drops of oil and spread over the surface. Using a large spoon, drop some of the batter onto the griddle or pan. Cook 4 at a time over a medium heat for around 1½ minutes then flip over and cook for a further minute on the other side.

When cooked place on a warm plate to keep hot while you finish off the remaining batter.  Serve with jam and butter or syrup.
