                                          First pictures of Sibyl on her first day with me.

                                         Scotch pancakes or drop scones.

Empty cupboard!

Friends for bridge, and the biscuits I had bought were found to be completely broken on opening.
So made a batch of drop scones, or Scotch pancakes as some people call them.

Drop Scones
125g self raising flour
1 egg 20 gms of butter.
a desert spoon of sugar,asnd a pinch of salt
enough milk to make a soft dropping mix off a spoon.

Rub the butter into the flour, add the sugar and salt,then the egg.
Slowly pour in the milk until it is thick enough to drop off a spoon.
Heat a frying pan or similar,  add a small amount of tasteless oil, ( vegetable or sunflower)

Drop spoonfuls into the hot pan, leave for a minute or so,then flip over and cook the underside.
They will puff up a litle.
makes about 18, depending how large your spoon is!
Photo coming when I can work out how to do it......
