Farl just means a circle cut into 4 quarters.


8oz self raising flour 

1/2 level teaspoon baking powder 

1 tablespoon vegetable oil 150ml 

(5fl oz) buttermilk (or milk soured with the juice of half a lemon) 

Pinch of salt

Optional (Treacle Scones)


1 tablespoon treacle (mix with the buttermilk)

1 oz sugar


Pre-heat the girdle and grease lightly. 

Sift the flour, baking powder into a bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the oil, buttermilk and salt. Mix to a soft pliable dough. Do not overmix. 

Turn out onto a floured board. Flour on top and divide into two. 

Roll each piece into a circle about 1cm (½ inch) thick and cut each round into 4 quarters. 

Bake on the girdle for about four to five minutes on one side. Turn and bake on the other side till cooked through. Fold in a tea towel.
