Raisin Scones Recipe

Raisin Scones Recipes

Ingredients :

2.25 cups (280g / 9 oz) self-raising flour

pinch of salt

1 tbsp sugar

20g (3/4 oz) butter, chopped

1/4 cup (50g / 1.75 oz) chopped raisins

1 egg

3/4 cup (185ml / 6 fl oz) milk

milk, extra, for glazing

Method :

Preheat the oven to moderate 220C (425F / Gas 7). Sift the flour, salt and sugar into a large bowl. Rub in the butter, using your fingertips, until the mixture is fine and crumbly. Stir in the raisins and make a well in the centre. Lightly beat the egg and milk in a small bowl. Add almost all the egg mixture at once to the flour mixture. Mix lightly with a flat-bladed knife to form a soft dough, adding the remaining egg mixture if needed.

Gather the dough together and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead it very lightly for 30 seconds, then press it out to 2.5cm (1 inch) thick. Cut rounds from the dough using a floured 5cm (2 inch) cutter. Heat a baking tray in the oven for 5 minutes. Place the rounds on the heated tray, leaving a small gap around each. Brush with the extra milk. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown. Wrap in a clean tea towel while still hot. Serve warm or cold, with butter.
