Week forty four and it was also my birthday this week. I was going to make one of Mary Berry‘s cakes from her Baking Bible but there was “secret squirrel” stuff going on and I had the most amazing surprise of a birthday cake appearing at the restaurant on my birthday courtesy of my hubby and my other mum and dad.
So, with a massive birthday cake to eat , what could I choose to make this week that meant I kept to my challenge? Drop Scones were the answer and that’s what we had for this evening’s tea as neither of us were overly hungry.
The mix was very straight forward, all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until the consistency was like cream. I didn’t have a griddle but I had my trusty frying pan and set to work. The pancakes were very tasty , an easy challenge week and a scrummy supper.
For someone who has eaten so many drop scones when he was a kid, I have to admit Mary’s recipe is lovely. My dear late grandmother, Lillian Brown, used to make these by the bucket load whenever we went down to stay… Something about good old West Country farming hospitality – Just keep feeding ’em!!! LOL
