These scones are cooked direct on the hotplate on a simmering to moderate heat.
They are also known as Scotch Pancakes, Griddle Scones, Crempogs or just plain Pancakes! This recipe uses self raising flour whereas older recipes use a mixture of bicarbonate of soda and cream of tartar for the raising agent.
Place the flour and sugar into a basin, mix together. Make a well in the centre and add the egg and half the milk. Whisk together, adding the remainder of the milk to make a smooth batter.
2, 3 and 4-oven AGA
Lightly oil the Simmering Plate with a little oil on a piece of kitchen paper. Drop tablespoonfuls of the mixture onto the surface. Cook one side then flip over and cook the other. Keep warm in a clean tea towel and serve with maple syrup or honey, warmed at the back of the AGA – or you can spread them with softened butter.
