  • Cut into circles, approximately 2½“ in diameter.
  • Prick all over with a fork.
  • Cook on a hot dry griddle or heavy pan dusted with a little flour.
  • When they brown with small darker spots appearing, they are cooked.
  • Serve hot off the griddle with maple syrup, golden syrup, honey or butter.
  • Wrap uneaten scones in greaseproof paper and refrigerate.
  • Reheat cold scones by frying them in bacon fat until crisp, and serve with bacon and eggs – delicious!
