Sieve the flour into a mixing bowl and add the sugar. Make a well in the centre, add the egg then slowly stir in the milk, bit by bit.
The runnier your batter, the thinner the drop scones, so if you want small puffy ones, use a tad less milk.
Heat a frying pan until moderately hot, and grease lightly with butter or oil. Spoon in the mixture a tablespoon at a time leaving space for each round to spread a little.
When the scones show bubbles all over the top, slide a spatula underneath and turn over. Heat on the second side until golden.
Serve piping hot with honey, butter or this...
Blackberry & Lemon Topping
Heat together the fruit & sugar/honey in a small pan with a lid until the sugar is dissolved, the fruit is soft and there is plenty of juice. Pour over your naked pile of drop scones and gorge yourself silly!
