Easy raisin scones

Easy raisin scones recipe

Easy raisn scones that are light and fluffy



75gms butter

2 large eggs

75gms sugar

4 tsp baking powder

230ml milk

500gms ‘strong flour’ – I used white bread flour

1 cup of raisins

1 x additional egg for the egg wash


Put all the ingredients except the flour and raisins in the mixer with a paddle attachment and mix on low until all combined

Add the flour and raisins and mix briefly

Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, need slightly and press out to a height of about 4- 5cm (I used my fingers)

Press out scones with a round and sharp cookie cutter until all the dough has been used (I used a 58mm or 2 1/4 inch cutter)

Beat an egg and brush over the tops of the scones

Put the scones in the fridge for about 30 minutes and while you preheat the oven to 200 c
Brush a second egg wash layer over the scones which gives it a really nice glaze and bake in the oven for 15 minutes until well risen and golden brown
