If you are looking for a recipe on how to make Scottish Potato Scones, then this is it!

Scottish Potato Scones are heavy, beautiful buttery scones that are the perfect comfort food on a cold day. These potato scones are delicious regardless of their simplicity so don’t judge these and think that there’s nothing special on them! Have a bite on them and you’ll see!

By the way, these are more like old-fashioned griddle cakes than scones and they are perfect to enjoy on a winter’s night!

This recipe makes 10 small or 8 medium scones. Serve them hot from the oven with lashings of butter. Yummy!


  1. Place the mashed potato in a bowl and mix in the butter, egg, and salt.

  2. Sift the self-raising flour well. Gradually add the flour to the mashed potato mix. You may not need all of the flour.

  3. Knead gently, divide into equal 10 balls (or 8 depending on how big you want them).

  4. Press gently to flatten and fry in a frying pan for a couple of minutes each side and cook until brown.

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Potato Scones are suitable to freeze for up to three months.
  • Serve the Scottish Potato Scones with fresh butter!
