Griddle Scones

It's my day off and I just fancied doing a little breakfast baking so I made some of these in about five minutes flat ... well, ok about five minutes mixing and then a half an hour actually cooking them - but it felt a quick and eminently do-able process for Sunday brunch.  Esmé and I enjoyed with with peanut butter, jam, honey, cheese and The Archers Omnibus!  (tbh Esmé wasn't that bothered about The Archers she was busy on her phone...doh!)

  • 8oz Plain White flour
  • 1tsp bicarb
  • 2 tsp cream of Tartar
  • 1tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • 1 lg knob of butter* (approx 40g)
  • ¼ pt milk*
You could of course easily use margarine and soya milk or something made from nuts if you felt a bit vegan-y
  1. preheat a greased griddle or heavy bottomed frying pan on a medium heat
  2. sift flour bicarb, cream of tartar and salt together
  3. rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs
  4. stir in the sugar
  5. mix in the milk to form a soft but not sticky dough
  6. roll out to ½ cm thick
  7. cut out with a round cutter or cut into triangles
  8. cook in batches:
  9. place rounds onto the griddle of frying pan and cook for about 5 minutes
  10. turn over and cook for another few minutes until golden and cooked through.
