If you find yourself with leftover Christmas pud, these Christmas Pudding Drop Scones by Lisa Faulkner are the perfect way to use it up! Kids sometimes find Christmas pudding a bit rich, so these scones are the ideal treat, as they give a flavour of the pud but in a soft pancake-like form. They are super-quick to rustle up and ideal served with ice cream – or brandy cream for grown-ups, if they fancy it.

Share recipe


  • 250g self-raising flour
  • ¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 60g caster sugar
  • 1 medium egg, beaten
  • 220ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 30g unsalted butter
  • 100g leftover Christmas pudding (or fruit cake), crumbled


Step 1

Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda together into a medium bowl. Stir in the sugar, then make a well in the centre of the mixture. In a jug, whisk the egg and milk together, then slowly beat into the dry mix to create a smooth, thick batter. Set aside to rest for 15 mins.

Step 2

Heat a large, non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Coat with the butter. Drop 6 individual, spaced out tbsp of the batter into the pan, then sprinkle a third of the Christmas pudding over the top. Cook for 2 mins, until bubbles appear on the surface of the pancakes, then flip and cook for 1 min or so, before removing them from the pan.

Step 3

Repeat the process with two more batches of 6, rubbing the pan with more butter before each. Serve with your choice of toppings.
