Easy Scones

This one is also from the archives but how could this one be missing? I like to eat my scones chunky, airy and with raisins for extra sweetness. By adding yoghurt the scones will get airy and not too dry. I hope you’ll enjoy these, they are super easy and fast to make.

Ingredients

  • 400 gr plain flour
  • 25 gr caster sugar
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 50g unsalted butter (softened)
  • 250 ml yogurt
  • 200 gr raisins (or no raisins for plain scones)
  • 1 egg (for glazing)

Preparation

  • Preheat the oven to 200 C
  • Mix with a wooden spoon in a large mixing bowl the flour, sugar, bicarbonate and salt until all is well mixed.
  • Soften the butter in a microwave or in a pan on the fire.
  • Add the butter, yoghurt and raisins to the rest of the dough.
  • Mix well with a wooden spoon until it becomes firm.
  • Powder a surface with flour and knead the dough until it is smooth.
  • Make it about 3 cm flat and use a scone cutter or glass approx 7.5 cm wide and 2.5 cm high.
  • Now cut the scones from the dough and place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  • Beat the egg and brush it over the scones.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.

Serve with clothed cream, fresh strawberries and strawberry jam.
