My nana makes the best girdle scones!
Does anybody know if there is an alternative way of making them since i don't have an oven with a girdle?? Can you use a special pan or anything like that??

Yes you can cook them in an electric frypan, works perfectly.

Glad to know that - my nana used to make them too - we loved helping, especially putting in the golden syrup.I must try them like this.

Is this just an ordinary scone mixture, and cook in electric frypan? Would like to know a little about girdle scones.

I do mine in a large heavy frypan on stove top ..... we always called them frypan scones. Or camp scones.

From Wikipedia: "The griddle scone is a variety of scone which is fried in a small amount of butter on a griddle or frying pan rather than baked.
In the Scots language, a griddle is referred to as a "girdle". Therefore "griddle scones" are known as "girdle scones". This usage is also common in New Zealand where scones, of all varieties, form an important part of the traditional cuisine. In New Zealand, griddle scones are generally cooked as one large disk shaped mass which is divided into wedges for serving, often with golden syrup or jam"

I wondered what a girdle pan would look like and here is what I found, I guess it is correct.

Definately girdle scones in my house (Scottish ancestry)

Girdle scones can be made on a girdle, like the photo someone put up, or i often use my cast iron fry pan on the gas pat your mixture out into a round cut scones into triangles and cook.

We called them flour scones (Scot here) and they were cooked in the pan like the photo above. They were lovely too!

Girdle scones in my house, a southerner. They were very plain, just flour. BP and milk I think. Patted into a round and then cut into sedments like shortbread by Nana. Squares for Mum, she had more to feed, Both of the girdles were cast iron, round and flat, with a handle over the top. Both women cooked on coal ranges and that handle got extremely hot. Served hot with lots of butter, syrup or cheese. Cold ones would be sandwiched with cheese and reheated until the cheese melted. No worries about fat content or the price of dairy in those days.
