Raisin Scones – Perfect for Sunday Afternoon Tea

Raisin scones

We’d been out for a rather large Sunday lunch to celebrate my brother-in-law’s 40th birthday and, although we knew we wanted something for tea, we weren’t all that hungry.  However, when I cooked these scones, we found they were particularly moreish and they disappeared rather quickly!  I had cut them out using a square cutter as I thought we might have some left over and they’d be easier to fit in lunchboxes on Monday if they were square.  They would have been – if we hadn’t eaten them all!  It’s amazing how many of these a two-year old can eat!

You will need:  100g butter, 450g self-raising flour, 1tsp baking powder, 300ml milk.

Preheat the oven to 220ºC.  In a large bowl, rub together the butter, flour and baking powder until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.  Mix together with the milk to form a soft dough.  Roll out, cut out using a cutter and place on a greased baking sheet.  Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.  Enjoy with jam.  If only we’d had some clotted cream – they would’ve tasted even better!
