These scones are cooked direct on the hotplate on a simmering to moderate heat. They are also known as Scotch Pancakes, Griddle Scones, Crempogs or just plain Pancakes!
115g (4 oz) self raising flour
25g (1 oz) caster sugar
150ml (¼ pint) milk
Maple syrup or honey or spread with butter
1. Place the flour and sugar into a basin, mix together. Make a well in the centre and add the egg and half the milk. Whisk together, adding the remainder of the milk to make a smooth batter.
2. Lightly oil the simmering plate with a little oil on a piece of kitchen paper. Drop tablespoonfuls of the mixture onto the surface. Cook one side then flip over and cook the other. Keep warm in a clean tea towel and serve with maple syrup or honey, warmed at the back of the AGA – or you can spread them with softened butter.
