Fruit Scones

2nd August 2018

Prep Time20 minsCook Time13 minsTotal Time33 mins

Yields9 Servings

 320 g self-raising flour
 70 g butter
 55 g sugar
 75 g raisins
 1 egg
 125 ml milk
 pinch of salt
 dash of vanilla extract
 Jam and clotted cream to serve

1

Preheat oven to 180°C and place a baking tray covered in non-stick baking paper into the oven.

2

Add the flour and a pinch of salt into a mixing bowl. Weight out your butter and then cut it into small cubes before then adding it to the bowl.

3

Now rub the butter into the mix using your hands until it looks like breadcrumbs.

4

Stir in the sugar and raisins and then form a well in the middle of mixture in preparation for the next step.

5

Add the milk, egg and vanilla essence into a jug and beat it altogether. Then pour this into the well of the flour mixture and quickly mix everything together using a regular knife til you form a dough.

6

Lightly cover your work surface with flour and then tip your dough onto it. Knead the dough a few times until it comes together into a smooth dough. Then flatten it out so that it is approximately 2cm high.

7

Get your baking tray out the oven and place it on the side. Now get your cutter (mine was 6cm) and place it into the dough. I then twist it a little in order to release the cutter from the remaining dough. Then place the scone on your tray. Repeat this until you have used all the dough - you’ll have to re-roll the off-cuts in order to make all 9 scones.

8

Then lightly brush the top of the scones with some milk to help them to golden brown. Place in the oven for 10 minutes and then check to see if they are cooked, you may need to place them in for a few more minutes til they are golden.

9

You can enjoy these hot and fresh out of the oven, I tend to let them cool a little and then top them with clotted cream and jam (you choose what comes first the cream or the jam!).
