The Breakfast Bible's Drop Scones / Drop Scones

 Drop Scones

    This week Blogging Marathon starts with interesting theme. We need to try three recipes from online book " The Breakfast Bible" written by Seb Emina. Seb Emina is the editor of the London Review of Breakfast. He talks about how a lack of breakfast coverage in the media inspired his obsession with breakfast.   
     
       When Valli announced this theme,  I go through the link and selected it. But after couple of week, when I had a close look with the book, I was left with few egg recipes which is very disappointing and are very similar to recipes to our Indian cuisine like broken egg curry, scrambled eggs etc with different names. 

        Since there is limited recipes form preview, I started to search online and ended with lots and lots of interesting information and popular dishes from the book. And one among the three recipe which  I have selected is Drop scone.  

      Scones are Scotland delicacy. It is a single serving quick bread made in various shapes including triangles, rounds and squares. Commercially there are sold in round shape and hexagon shape.  These Scottish pancake can be prepared either sweet or savory, depends on the individual taste and you can check here for potato scone which I have posted last week. Traditionally scones are cooked on hot griddle, for more healthier version it is also cooked in oven or non stick griddle. Enjoy this delectable scones for your breakfast or with cup of tea.

 This recipe is for Blogging Marathon 38 under the theme " Recipes from The Breakfast Bible". Do check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM# 38.
