Dropped Scones

These little dropped scones or mini American style pancakes are a fun thing to snack on for afternoon tea and are great for little toddlers to munch on. You can make a batch ahead of time and they will keep for a couple of days.  You will find these in most British grocery stores and we got some in New Zealand as well.  I guess since its the big wedding fun to share a British recipe, I am happy for them, but not getting up at 4 am to watch it would struggle for my own family he he its cool the UK has a long weekend for it though :-) 

Weddings are indeed fun and I love attending them its just a day though the key is focusing on love and working through the good and the bad times as a team.  Always remember you love your partner and forgive for the small things in the end you can't even remember what all the little fights were about! My hubby was just saying that to me last night :-)


  • 8 oz of self raising flour
  • a pinch of salt
  • one egg
  • one tablespoon of sugar
  • about a cup of milk
  • butter and jam or honey to serve 

  1. mix egg, flour, sugar and milk together until you get a nice batter for pancakes
  2. heat a pan add a little canola oil and drop a little batter onto the pan cooking a couple at a time, basically they are mini pancakes cook one side then flip :-)
  3. enjoy with a nice cuppa :-)

Have a wonderful weekend everyone
