Stove Top Scones

2 cups (230 gr.) all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. sugar
1/2 – 1 tsp. salt
3-4 tbsp. cold butter
1 egg
1/2 cup yogurt
1/2 cup milk
optional: sesame seeds


1. Mix together (or sift) the dry ingredients.
2. Add the butter in small pieces and rub it into the flour quickly, forming a breadcrumb-like texture.
3. Beat together the egg, yogurt and milk.
4. Mix the liquid mixture quickly into the flour mixture until it forms a ball. (Don’t knead)
5. On a lightly floured board flatten out the mixture to about 3/4 inch (2 cm.).
6. Cut out rounds with a cookie cutter and place them into a heavy bottomed and preheated pan on a low flame.
7. Do not grease the pan. Cover and “bake” for about 5 minutes until golden, then turn around and bake the other side.
8. Remove from pan and serve hot or cold with jam and cream, or cream cheese if desired.

TIP: Before baking press the scones into a small bowl of sesame seeds.
