So, this morning after taking the pooch for his beach walk, I was looking for something to eat. Surprise. Not coming up with anything in the fridge or cupboards that looked pleasing , I decided scones would be a good idea. One of the things I love about scones, is that they can be sweet or savoury, served with breakfast, lunch or snacks, and they are quick and easy to make. Okay, so that is more than one thing. I was planning to add nuts to these scones, but realized I was out. So just raisins it was today.
Oat and Raisin Scones
2 Cups/250 grams of flour
2/3 Cups/60 grams of oats
2 Tablespoons of sugar
3 Teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 Teaspoon of salt
3/4 Cup/180 ml of butter milk
1 Egg, whisked
1/4 Cup/55 grams butter at room temperature
1/2 Cup/75 grams raisins
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and grease and line a large baking tray.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix together and cut in butter. Using either your fingers or a pastry cutter, mix the butter into the flour mixture. You will have fine bread crumb texture. Whisk the egg and milk together in a small bowl. Add to the flour mixture and stir until it is combined. You will have quite a sticky dough texture. Add the raisins and stir to combine.
Spoon the dough onto the tray in 10 even mounds. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool. I love them straight out of the oven with butter. But they are still great served later on. These will only keep for up to 2 days in an airtight container.
