As you know I can't get hold of SR flour and I want to try the drop scones from an old 1977 Delia Book of Cakes.
Apart from the SR flour it includes 1.5 tsp bicarbonate of soda and 1 tsp cream of tartar. Are these essentiai and shall I add more baking powder to make up for the lack of these ingredients? I can buy bicarbonate of soda but cream of tartar is more difficult.
I will be using a frying pan, so do I have to keep greasing the pan or will the first greasing last?
