Griddle Scones Recipe

Ingredients: Makes 12

225 g/8 oz/2 cups plain (all-purpose) flour
5 ml/1 tsp bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
10 ml/2 tsp cream of tartar
2.5 ml/0.5 tsp salt
25 g/1 oz/2 tbsp lard (shortening) or butter
25 g/1 oz/2 tbsp caster (superfine) sugar
150 ml milk
Oil for greasing

Method:

Mix together the flour, bicarbonate of soda, cream of tartar and salt. Rub in the lard or butter, then stir in the sugar. Gradually blend in the milk until you have a soft dough. Cut the dough in half and knead and shape each into a flat round about 1 cm or 1/2 in thick. Cut each round into six. Heat a griddle or large frying pan (skillet) and oil lightly. When hot, place the scones (biscuits) in the pan and cook for about 5 minutes until golden on the underside, then turn over and cook on the other side. Leave to cool on a wire rack.
