Drop scones are basically thick pancakes. The batter is made by simply stirring together a few basic ingredients, and the pancakes cook in minutes. Here they are flavoured with diced apple and toasted hazelnuts. Top with a little maple syrup and enjoy warm from the pan.
Make fresh berry drop scones by adding 100g blackberries or raspberries to the batter in place of the pear, and seasoning with a good pinch of ground mixed spice. Omit the hazelnuts, if you prefer.
