These are also known as Scotch Pancakes, especially in the North of Ireland.

They must be cooked as soon as possible after mixing, because the acid in the buttermilk starts to react with the baking soda at once. For that reason the griddle or pan should be heated before combining the ingredients.

Ingredients

2 c
plain flour
1/2 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
salt
1 tsp
sugar
1 large
egg
1 c
buttermilk

Step-By-Step

1Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl.

2Make a well in the middle with a wooden spoon and add the egg.

3Break the yolk and pour in the buttermilk, mixing quickly to a thick batter.

4Do not beat, as this would develop the gluten in the flour and prevent the pancakes from rising.

5Fry in large dollops on a lightly-greased, hot griddle or heavy frying-pan.

6Drop scones are best served hot for tea, thickly spread with melting butter and syrup or jam.
