Here is another Girdle Cooking Recipe: Girdle Scones. Enjoy!
|225 g plain flour||0.5 tspn salt||1 tspn baking powder|
|50 g butter||50 g caster sugar||150 ml buttermilk, soured milk or thin cream|
Heat and prepare girdle or heavy based frying pan as described here. Sift flour, salt and baking powder into a bowl. Cut fat into flour and rub in until mixture resembles even-sized breadcrumbs. Stir sugar into mixture. If desired, additional flavourings such as dried fruit can be stirred in at this time.
Make a hollow in the middle of the mixture and pour in the liquid. Work in to make a soft but not sticky dough. Gather the dough together with your fingers and turn out on to a floured board. Knead lightly and quickly.
Roll out dough to a round 12mm thick. Using a long bladed knife, cut into 8 wedges. Carefully transfer wedges to heated girdle and bake for 5 minutes or until well risen and light brown underneath. Turn and bake for a further 5 minutes until evenly browned and hollow sounding when tapped.
