Drop Scones with Fruit

prep 5 mins cook 5 mins
  • 50 g (2 oz) plain flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 25 g (1 oz) dried fruit, such as cranberries
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 50 ml (2 fl oz) milk
  • 15 g (½ oz) unsalted butter

Sift together the flour and baking powder and stir in the sugar and dried fruit. Add the egg and milk and beat to give a smooth batter.

Melt the butter in a frying pan. Add spoonfuls of the mixture to the pan and cook for about 1 minute or until lightly browned (you should have sufficient batter for 6 pancakes). Once the surface is covered in bubbles, turn over and cook until lightly browned.

Serve immediately with clear honey, if liked.
