Method Prep:15min › Cook:15min › Ready in:30min
Preheat oven to 220 C / Gas 7. Grease one baking tray.
Combine the plain flour, wholemeal flour, caster sugar, baking powder, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg and salt in a bowl and mix well. Rub the butter into the flour until crumbly and stir in the raisins. Make a well in the centre.
In a small bowl beat the egg until frothy. Mix in the milk and pour into the well made in the dry ingredients. Stir to make a soft dough.
Turn dough out on to a lightly floured surface. Knead gently 8 to 10 times. Pat dough into two 15cm circles and transfer to the prepared baking tray. Brush tops with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Score each top into 6 equal pie shaped wedges.
Bake at 220 C / Gas 7 for 15 minutes or until well risen and browned. Serve hot with butter.
Very nice recipe,very light and fluffy. I used 100g sultanas instead of the currants.
Made these scones again,this time I soaked the sultanas in tea for 6 hours and replaced some of the milk with natural yogurt.
Still my favourite scone recipe - 06 Jul 2014
Halved the recipe to try. Epic Fail.
Dough was too sticky to cut wif pastry cutter. Seems too much liquid even though I follow recipe proportion.
End up looking like rock cakes n dry inside. =( - 21 Sep 2014
This is a nice recipe but for some reason the dough remained soft so i made a sort of rock cake instead but they was still very good. With Strawberries and cream they are great!
I only used plain flour, about 200g of sugar rather than 4 tablespoons which weighed nearly 100g and i was rather generous with the cinnamon. - 04 Apr 2012
