Turn on to a floured work surface and knead very lightly. Pat out to a round 2cm/¾in thick. Use a 5cm/2in cutter to stamp out rounds and place on a baking sheet. Lightly knead together the rest of the dough and stamp out more scones to use it all up.

Brush the tops of the scones with the beaten egg. Bake for 12-15 minutes until well risen and golden.

Here’s a quick recipe for making pancakes: 

200g/7oz plain flour.

350-400ml/12-14fl oz milk, or ½ milk ½ water for a lighter pancake

2 Large eggs, slight whisked.

1 tbsp vegetable oil.

A pinch of salt.

Vegetable oil for frying.

via/google

Method: 

Put the flour into a large bowl, make a well in the centre and pour in the milk and eggs. Give the liquid mixture a quick whisk before incorporating the flour. Continue to whisk until you have a smooth batter.

Now add 1 tbsp vegetable oil and whisk thoroughly.

Take a crêpe pan, or large frying pan, dip some kitchen roll in the oil and carefully wipe the inside of the pan. Heat the pan over a medium heat for a minute.

Add just under a ladleful of batter to the pan and immediately start swirling it round the pan to get a nice even layer.

Cook the pancake for approximately 30-40 seconds. Use a palette knife to lift the pancake carefully to look at the underside to check it is golden-brown before turning over. Cook the other side for approx 30-40 seconds and transfer to a serving plate.

A pancake/crepe is a type of very think pastry, usually made from wheat flour or buckwheat. Crepes are mostly consumed in Europe but they’ve become pretty popular in North America and South America in more recent times.

Sweet crepes are usually made with wheat flour while savoury crepes are not made with wheat flours. Common savoury crepes are usually served for lunch and dinner with cheese, ham, eggs, ratatouille, mushrooms and even artichokes in some places. The fillings are commonly in the centre of the crepe and served with the edges partially folded over the centre.
