Raisin Free Scones

Posted 2013-06-12 by Tammy Faceyfollow
Classic scones are studded with raisins, but they can be enjoyed without the fruit. Serve them fresh out the oven and smeared with a healthy helping of strawberry jam and double cream.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 12 servings

Ingredients
2 eggs
75g cold butter
1 tsp baking powder
160ml milk
50g granulated sugar
Strawberry jam (optional)
Clotted/whipped double cream (optional)

Required ingredients


Method
  • Add the baking powder to the flour.



  • Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk using a fork.



  • Cube the butter.



  • Rub the butter to the flour mixture until it resembles breadcrumbs.



  • Add the milk and all but 1 tablespoon of the whisked eggs and mix together using a spatula.

  • Place the dough onto a floured surface, being careful not to over work it, and roll it into a 2cm thick rectangle.



  • Using a cookie-cutter, or a small ramekin press out 12 circles.



  • Place each 'scone circle' onto a greased baking tray and place in the oven for 10 minutes (no more) at 160 degrees/gas mark 3.



  • They should turn out slightly golden and crumbly-looking.



  • Place scones on a wire rack to cool.



  • Serve with a dollop of strawberry jam, homemade is best and an equal portion of cream.
