Recipe for gorgeous fresh Scones with raisins
450g Self-raising flour
50g Caster Sugar
2 tsp baking powder
100g raisins, sultanas, cherries, cranberries (optional)
Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
In a bowl, mix flour, caster sugar and baking powder.
Cut in the butter and work with hands until well combined and resembling fine breadcrumb texture.
Add in your fruit and gradually add milk – work in until well combined and forms a soft dough.
Press out on a floured surface (not working or kneading the dough too much as it will not rise).
Cut with scone cutter and lace on a floured baking tray (not too close together).
Using a pastry brush, brush the tops with milk or beaten egg.
Bake for +- 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool on a cooling rack.
Enjoy hot or cold.
