    Girdle (Yes Girdle) Scones Excellent for a Quick Tasty Lunch

    Hauled some Tomato Soup out from the Freezer. I have posted this recipe earlier and I have to tell you it was wonderful... Click here and scroll down to Roasted Tomato Soup.

    It did need cream, as it is a very intense Red tomato soup.
    You can also use for a lighter option, full cream milk
    Here is a shot, taken before it went into the freezer.

    It's Monday morning and a bit short on bread... so called on the Edmonds Famous Girdle Scone recipe.
    Yes they are called Girdle scones and not Griddle. Scottish apparently
    This is exceptionally simple and quick as.
    Excellent for boats, caravans etc, no need for an oven.

    For 2 good servings
    1 cup plain flour
    1 tsp Baking Powder

    1/2 salt
    1/4 cup milk
    1/4 cup yogurt or sour cream

    Sift flour, Baking powder and salt
    Mix milk and yogurt
    Add to flour
    Mix with a knife
    Then start kneading lightly with your hands.

    You may find you need a little more water, a dry dough is not a good dough.
    On a floured bench pat into a circle
    Score into 8 pieces
    Heat a griddle or a frypan in this case till "smokin'"
    Cook about 4 minutes on side

    Turn over and cook same amount.
    Just watch that it doesn't burn

    Remove... break into  pieces
     Serve hot with plenty of butter

    What a delicious quick lunch
