Griddle Scones: Plain Butter

After trying out Sue Lawrence's Oatmeal Bannocks and finding them very tasty. I decided to try other types of Scottish griddle scones.

Plain Butter Scones


  • 225g (8oz) white flour
  • 1 ¼ tsp. baking powder
  • ⅛ tsp. salt
  • 50g (2oz) butter, unsalted
  • 50g (2oz) caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3-4 Tbsp milk


  • Set a large frypan or griddle on low to heat
  • Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt together until well combined
  • Beat the eggs and milk together
  • Using your hands, rub the butter into the dry mixture until it look like coarse crumbs
  • Add the sugar until well mixed
  • Working gently, add the milk & egg mixture
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface
  • Pat into an 20cm (8 inch) round
  • Cut into 4 quarters
  • Cook in the pan or griddle for 4-7 minutes or until golden brown
  • Flip and brown the other side for 3-5 minutes

Eat with jam, cream, butter or the topping of your choice. They are best eaten right off the griddle.

Tools: large fry-pan or griddle
