About this recipe: There are many scone recipes, but the best ones result in a scone that rises a little but not too much and has a light doughy texture. Sometimes it can be hit or miss how your scones turn out and you may need to adjust the recipe to your liking to achieve the perfect shape and texture. Served with jam and clotted cream they are a British favourite in small town cafes with a cup of steaming hot tea, also known as a cream tea.
Raisins and currants are the most common used dried fruits, but you can use others such as chopped dried apricots, blueberries, cranberries, or mixed dried fruit comprising of raisins, sultanas, currants and citrus peel.
