Overseas pastry: scon drops

150 years after the arrival of Welsh settlers on our shores, a registered trademark of their culture that remains in force, is their overseas pastries.


Welsh people who arrived in Patagonia with their families did not immediately develop their culinary skills. Prosperity and stability resulted in the memories of   those flavors will see the light again with the passage of time   . Today, overseas pastries are one of the most prized by all Patagonians and Patagonians.

The brightness of these recipes was jealously sheltered, like the most wonderful treasure. That is why, for a long time, they were transmitted only from generation to generation.   Today we are lucky enough to have access to these recipes of yesteryear   and enjoy the flavors of these Welsh delights.

  What are the scon drops ?  

They are   smaller pancakes   to which we are used to, and thicker. In Wales, they were named after   Crempog   and unlike those who made Welsh women from Patagonia, they contained buttermilk and vinegar. Today we share this recipe, which is part of the best of overseas pastries.

  The magic formula that doesn't flaw  

Ingredients (6 servings)

  • 8 tablespoons flour
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons leafant powder
  • 1 egg
  • Milk (required amount)

  A fact to keep in mind   : The number of scones drops that come out with these ingredients will depend on the final size given to the pieces. However, many recommend making them the size of a medium saucer.


In order for this wonderful recipe to give good results, it is necessary to bind the ingredients in the order in which they appear in the list.

  1. Mix, then, flour with sugar, leavening powder, eggs and milk.
  2. Add milk until a thick mass is prepared. Simultaneously, heat the iron plate, butter and put from a spoonfuls, in it, the preparation performed (dough).
  3. Brown them on one side and turn them over to brown them on the other side.

Although they can be eaten alone in hot, the best proposal is to accompany them with dulce de leche or honey. We can also accompany them with cheese and/or butter, pates, pickles, among others.

Originally, they were served as a tower, with butter and sugar. So you could try that original presentation when it comes to surprise your family or friends.
