About this recipe: These girdle scones are a traditional Scottish favourite. They are also sometimes known as griddle scones.

Makes: 10 girdle scones

  • 280g (10 oz) self raising flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 30g to 60g (1 to 2 oz) butter
  • milk, as needed

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:8min  ›  Ready in:23min 

  1. Into a bowl sift together the flour and salt then rub in the butter with your fingers until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Gradually add just enough milk to form a dough.
  2. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead very lightly for a few minutes then using a rolling pin roll out to 5mm (1/4 in) thickness. Using a fluted or plain cutter, cut into rounds.
  3. Place the scones onto a greased and floured moderately hot girdle and cook for 4 minutes each side or until browned and risen. Remove from the heat and serve hot or cold.


A baking girdle should be well greased then heated until a little water sprinkled on the surface skips about in balls and evaporates.
