We always seem to get asked the same questions about living somewhat off grid in a motor home, to which the answers seem to spark a dozen more questions! So (to give our voices a rest!) here's the answers to our most frequently asked questions...

Drop Scones

Enjoy a delicious cream tea wherever you are! Traditional scones require baking but with this recipe all you need is your trusty frying pan, and some cream of course! Clotted if you can get your hands on it, otherwise whipped double cream will do... no whisk either? Try our Cheats No-Whip Thick cream using lemon juice>


These are especially good if you’ve been fruit picking as you can make a compote or jam from your harvest for something really special, otherwise regular store-bought jam works just fine! I especially like the little single serving jam pots you can get, if you come across any save them to top up with jam from larger jars for the perfect picnic serving. 


Cheeky Cheat – for lightweight camping use dried egg, put the ingredients into a zip-lock bag or small tub and just add water when you’re ready to cook.


Ingredients:    (makes approx. 12 scones)

110g self-raising flour

60g sugar

1 egg / 12.5g dried egg + 2 tbsp. water

a pinch of salt

approx. 5 tbsp. milk to mix

oil for frying

+ jam and cream to top



1. Mix all dry ingredients in a jug or bowl and add the egg. Add the milk and beat to make a thick batter. Pre-heat a lightly oiled frying pan.

2. Using a tablespoon, drop a spoon full of the batter onto the frying pan. Use a small circular motion as you 'drop' to help the batter form a round scone. Repeat until the pan is full.

3. The scones will puff up slightly as they cook. After a minute, when you see small bubbles begin to appear in the batter, carefully flip them over with a spatula. They should still be wet on top.

4. Cook the other side for the same length of time, being careful not to let them burn. Turn down the heat if the pan seems too hot.

5. Keep the cooked ones warm on a plate until you have cooked the rest. Slice, sandwich, and otherwise cover in jam and cream before devouring - don't forget the tea!

About us:

My name is Sarah and in 2011 my husband Ryan and I decided to buy and re-fit an old motor home - we named it Waki and now live in it full time in the UK!

We live neither on or off-grid, rather somewhere in between, and are not the first and I dare say not the last to choose this way of life... read more>>
