About this recipe: Very quick tasty scones, not as dry as bought ones. My family love them so much, so I make these every second day, 2 or 3 batches of them and they are always eaten. Everyone says these are much better than bought scones. These ones are raisin scones.
once you get these mastered..why not have 2 bowls on the go at the one time and do batch baking I usually cook cherry scones along with a batch of plain or raisin or. You can double the mixture for both bowls and do 4 batches of scones...
you can add a little salt but to be honest I prefer not too and although most recipes have salt I have tried it both ways and don't notice any difference
Really great, easy recipe but be careful how much milk you add as I found the quantity was far too much, even adding it in little amounts I ended up adding too much and had to add more flour. Despite that, they tasted great. - 23 Aug 2011
Very tasty scones. I doubled the mixture as 6 scones would not go very far in my house! However there seemed to be far too much milk. I only added about 3/4 of it bit by bit and it became far too sticky so I had to add a lot more flour. Also I would cut out circles at a depth of about 3-4cm rather than 2 as they were a bit flat. Could also add less sultanas. Delicious though - 10 Jul 2011
These are very easy. I made them with soya milk and they tasted great. Don't forget to brush with milk as I did on the first batch (even soya works) or they are very pale, though they taste the same. Good basic recipe to experiment with. - 22 Aug 2011
