Drop Scones



Updated post.

Back by popular demand- Oliver is up to his culinary escapades again with his Daddy’s Godfather, Andy. Here they make drop scones together. Eat your heart out CBeebies ‘I Can Cook’.

Drop scones are similar to pancakes in consistency but are thicker in texture and more filling so ideal for little ones. You can freeze them too if you like and they make great additions to picnics and packed lunches.

These drop scones are light, fluffy and deliciously moreish! Perfect for an indulgent breakfast or special treat!


Serves 4

  • 25g unsalted butter
  • 140g self-raising flour
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tbsp white caster sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 150ml semi-skimmed milk


Melt the butter gently in a pan. Sift the flour and salt into a mixing bowl and add the sugar. Create a well in the centre, add the egg and milk and whisk or blend.

Heat a medium pan, melt some butter and spoon in 5 spoons of batter. Once the drop scones bubble as with pancakes, flip.

Add any toppings you like. We love a sprinkle of sugar.

Have you tried drop scones before?
