  1. Recipe: Blueberry Drop Scones

    April 10, 2011 by Editor

    I posted the gallery to go with this recipe yesterday, go there to see more pictures.
    It really was an incredibly easy one to do, but so rewarding.

    Drop scones are my new breakfast favourites, though I’m pretty sure you could have them at any time.

    Interestingly, we called these crumpets when I was younger, though we made them plain and served them with golden syrup rather than maple syrup, less ‘sophisticated’ maybe, but no less tasty!

    Recipe: Blueberry Drop Scones

    Summary: An easy, but incredibly tasty, breakfast snack

    Ingredients

    1. 2 free-range eggs, beaten
    2. 125ml of semi-skimmed milk
    3. 75g self-raising flour
    4. 1 teaspoon baking powder
    5. 2 tablespoons blueberries
    6. 25g butter (for frying)
    7. Maple Syrup (or another of your choice for smothering)

    Instructions

    1. Mix the dry ingredients with the milk until it forms a thick batter
    2. Melt the butter in a medium-to-hot pan
    3. Pour a ladle full of the mix into the pan and cook until golden brown on one side
    4. Flip the drop scone and cook until golden-brown on the other
    5. Serve hot and drizzled (smothered) in maple syrup

    Variations

    Alongside this batch I also made wholemeal drop scones by replacing the self raising flour with coarse wholemeal flour and leaving out the blueberries.

    Tips

    Warming the maple syrup by placing the bottle in a bowl of warm-hot water is an excellent idea, it makes the syrup flow MUCH easier.
