Oatmeal Drop Scones

I really loved the idea of these, but they were a bit disappointing. Still tasty, but a bit boring. I expect they will be a lot more interesting when you fry them in a large knob of butter.

Oatmeal Drop Scones (makes about 25)
From Vegetarian Living

150 g fine oatmeal
400 ml buttermilk

75 g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp runny honey
pinch of salt
1 egg
up to 50 ml milk

Mix the oatmeal with the buttermilk and leave to soak for a few hours or overnight.
Add the flour and baking soda and mix well. Add the honey, salt and egg and mix. Add enough milk to make a nice batter (consistency of double cream).
Heat a frying pan, drop dollops of the batter in it, and leave to spread out by itself. Cook for about 2-3 minutes on medium heat, then turn over and cook for another minute. Repeat with the remaining batter.
Serve immediately with butter, jam, honey, maple syrup or golden syrup
