Girdle scones

Girdle - a form of 'Griddle', a circular iron plate with hooped handle, suspended or placed over the fire and used for baking scones, oat-cakes, etc.
Girdle scones, as their name suggests, should be cooked on a girdle, but as for Scots pancakes they can equally well be cooked in a heavy-based pan or on the hot plate of an electric cooker. To serve, split in two and spread thickly with butter.

ingredients

makes 8.
225 g (1/2 lb) flour
Pinch of salt
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp spoon caster sugar
50 g (2 oz) butter
150 ml (1/4 pint) milk

method

1. Sift the flour with the salt and baking powder into a mixing bowl.

2. Stir in the sugar. Rub in the butter.

3. Make a well in the centre of the flour and stir in the milk gradually until a stiff dough is formed.

4. Divide the dough in half and roll out on a floured board into two rounds approx. 1.25 cm (1/2 in) thick. Cut each round into four triangles. Dust with a little flour.

5. Heat the girdle or frying pan until hot.

6. Wrap a small piece of suet in a piece of kitchen paper and use to grease girdle.

7. Cook the scones for about 5 minutes on each side or until risen and golden-brown. Serve immediately.
