Oaty banana drop scones

Oaty banana drop scones

I’m a big fan of drop scones served buttered, with fat slices of banana and a sprinkling of cinnamon on top. We often have them for weekend family breakfasts or cosy Sunday teas. 
But when I have some brown, speckled, softening bananas that aren’t quite up to being showcased in that way, 
I like to fold them into the scone batter so I can still capitalise on all their lovely, fruity flavour.

Serves 6 | Prep 15 mins | Cook 30 mins
100g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder pinch of salt
80g rolled oats
1 large free-range egg, lightly beaten
150ml milk
40g butter, melted
1 large, very ripe banana (the skin should be flecked with brown)
2 tbsp clear honey
a little sunflower oil, for frying
To serve (optional):
caster sugar, to sprinkle pinch of ground cinnamon
slices of banana (a perfect specimen, if you have one!)

1 Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. 
Add the oats and mix well, then make a well in the centre. In a jug, beat together the egg, half the milk and the melted butter. 
Mash the banana and honey together in a separate small bowl.

2 Gradually pour the egg mixture into the well in the flour and oats, whisking to combine. 
Using a large spoon, fold in the banana and honey, then gradually stir in some more milk, stopping when you have a batter with the consistency of very thick cream. You may not need all the milk.

3 Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a little splash of oil.
Rub with a thick wad of kitchen paper to lightly oil the pan.

4 You’ll need to cook the drop scones in batches. Pour some batter into the pan – to form discs about the size of a digestive biscuit, spacing them apart. 
After a couple of minutes, bubbles will start to appear on the surface. Flip them over and cook for a further 3–4 minutes.

5 Transfer the cooked drop scones to a warm plate and cover with a clean tea towel. Keep warm while you cook the rest, greasing the pan a little more if necessary and adjusting the heat if they’re browning too quickly. You should get about 20 drop scones from the mixture.

6 Serve while hot, spread with butter and topped, if you like, with a sprinkling of sugar, a little cinnamon and slices of (your best) banana.
