Raisins Scones

Makes 13-16

Ingredients Amounts
Plain flour3 cups
Sugar1/2 cup
Baking powder5 tsp
Salt1 tsp
Milk1 cup
Beaten egg1


1 cup

  1. Combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in a deep bowl. Cut butter into small pieces and mix into the flour mixture. Rub the butter with the flour using your finger tips till crumbs like mixture is formed.

  2. Add milk and beaten egg into the crumb mixture and mixed well. If the dough is sticky, you may add in more flour. Pour the raisins into the dough and knead well.

  3. Roll the dough flat onto a floured surface. Cut the dough into circular shape and bring to bake at 200 degree Celsius for 15 mins or till golden brown.

I forgotten where I got this recipe from ( sign of aging *sniffs*) but I wrote that down and stick it onto my fridge, so when I was cracking my brain what to prepare for breakfast, I saw that and was happy since I got all the ingredients on hand, plus I was craving for scones after I ate that at InterContinental Hotel.

This is the second time I'm attempting on scones and the last time, Prince Charming complaint that he does not like fluffy scones so I was crossing my fingers that this is not something that he would fuss about. Quite a relieve that Prince Charming commented he likes this much better than the previous attempt :)

Serves this with your favourite jams and it'll make a good breakfast or high tea ;)
