Drop Scones

I've discovered drop scones. I think some people call them pikelets, they could really just be described as mini-pancakes. And they are quick. I was reluctant to delve into egg replacement products, but how long can you live without pancakes. The amount below is enough to fill one large frypan, which is enough for one hungry toddler and mum for morning or afternoon tea.

½ cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp NO EGG
1 ½ tbs sugar
1 tbs melted butter
½ cup milk

Mix dry ingredients, add milk and butter (melt butter in frying pan you are about to use), and mix well. Drop spoonfuls onto moderately hot greased frying pan. When bubbles have formed and burst, turn over and cook until done.

Serve with lots of butter and jam.

Good question, I been a bit vague there... It is an egg-replacement product avaliable locally called 'No-egg egg replacer' by a company called Orgran. The listed ingrediants are: Potato Starch, tapioca flour, vegetable gum: methycellulose, calcium carbonate, food acid: citric. I found it in a health food shop, its also avaliable on-line through, which I should put a link to.
