    Life is hectic and yesterday when I was exhausted from gardening I had a sudden urge to go inside and make drop scones. I just love that moment when the batter creates bubbles as it cooks.  I think if they could talk they would be saying "turn me over now". Here is the recipe:

    200g plain flour

    1.5 teaspoons of baking powder

    pinch salt

    1 tablespoon caster sugar

    1 large egg

    about 250ml milk

    Sieve the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar into a bowl.  Make a well in the centre and add the egg and half the milk.  Beat or whisk until smooth, adding the rest of the milk to make a thick batter. Heat a frying pan and drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the greased surface.  Wait a minute or two for the bubbles and turn over. Cook for a further two minutes. Keep them warm and serve with butter and jam, golden syrup or honey.
