I love making and eating these pan scones, as this is my very lovely Scottish Nanny B’s recipe. She was an amazing cook and Even cooked for for a famous whisky family in Scotland at one stage of her life. She grew her own veg, cooked from scratch, ate all sorts of animals and parts, ate very little processed food and lived a very healthy life until 94! So she must of done something right I say.
She cooked these all the time for us and put sultanas or raisins in the mixture. Once cooked put honey, jam, butter or lemon and sugar on them. Delicious.
I’ve adapted them for gluten and dairy free and work wonderfully.
They store in an air tight container for a day or two and toast well.
GLUTEN AND DAIRY FREE OPTION PAN SCONES
- 6 oz self raising flour gluten free like doves farm work well if using
- 2 oz sugar
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1 tsp baking powder gluten free if using for gf
- 1 tsp cream of tartar
- 2 large eggs
- 1/4 pint of milk alternative milk like oat milk or soya milk works well
- 2 tbsp golden syrup
- Mix all the ingredients together and whisk, ensuring all the lumps are out.
- Put a non stick frying pan on the heat and allow to heat up. Put large dollops of the mixture into the frying pan leaving space between and leave to cook. You will see them puff up a little as they cook. When you see a good number of bubbles appear through your pan scone this is time for you to flip your pan scone over and cook on the other side. See picture below.
Here is a few suggestions you might find helpful, A glass measuring jug is just essential. You can measure in it, weigh in it, heat things in the microwave it, even cook in it if you need to in the microwave, its dishwasher safe and the measurements on the side are hard wearing. Its a staple and will last you for years. i bake, cook and use it for all sorts.
I also have Anolon pans and i can really rate these! I have had some of my pans for over 20 years and considering i use then a lot!! (like every day, this is hard core use!) They are great at keeping things warm at the table too, as well as looking stylish) The metal handles on the frying pans means they can go in the oven which is great for steaks meat dishes, fish, grilling, as well as omelettes etc.
I recently bought a saute pan from Eaziglide, i was recommend this whilst i was on a shopping trip, i was looking at Le Creuset and this was a comparison but cheaper. I am so impressed with this pan, i had to give it a shout out!! Amazing non stick, you can use metal implements with this and can go in the oven and put this in the dishwasher too. I will be buying more, these pans are incredible!!
