Dave's Delicious Scones
This recipe is very easy to make and it taste so good. A bit messy, but worth it.
These scones are great for breakfast and is a big hit around our place when the clan is here.
Ingredients are as follows:
- 3 cups of Flour
- 5 Tsp of Baking Powder
- 1 cup of Sugar
- ¾ cup of cold Butter
- 1 cup of Raisins (soak in hot water)
- 3/4 cup of Butter Milk
- 1 large Egg (separated)
|The scone-dough on the counter|
|Brushing on the egg yolk|
|Ready to go in to the oven.|
Drain and add raisins, mix in milk. You may have to add a little extra liquid to take up all the flour. The mix will be sticky.
Scoop on to a large floured area (counter works fine), divide and pat into three cakes, place on large baking sheet and brush top with egg yolk.
Score each cake into 6 or 8 pieces. Bake for 20 minutes. Call in the troops, these scones will be gone in no time.
