Recipe: Potato scone

This is useful. It goes insanely well with goulash but would work with anything you’ve got that has gravy to soak up. Or, heck, just as an alternative to bubble-and-squeak.

Mash 200g potato nice and dry, then beat in 1 egg, 50ml olive oil and 100ml warm milk. Put 120g plain flour in a bowl with half tsp salt and 1 tsp bicarb of soda. Dump the potato goop in with the flour and mix it all together.

Now get a small cast iron pan hot on a medium-low heat. Get some butter and/or oil hot in the pan and then tip the mixture in, settle it down. Cook on a low heat for 4-5 mins, then free the edges and shift it out onto a plate so you can turn the pan upside-down, put it on top, and tip the thing over to cook the other side. About 4 mins on this side.

Then it goes in a 200C oven for about 7-8 minutes. You should get some bubbles and rise from the bicarb so you end up with a soft and fluffy scone.
