Raisin Scones

Raisin Scones
(Recipe adapted & modify from
Baking Library

130g plain flour
20g castor sugar
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
60g salted butter, chilled & cubed
130ml whipping cream, chilled


Sift flour & baking powder into a mixing bowl. Add in sugar.  

2. Add in the cubed butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse flour-coated butter crumbs.

3. Pour in whipping cream & raisins. Use a spatula & stir to obtain a moist sticky dough.

4. Chill the dough for 10mins.

5. Lightly flour a work surface. Flatten the dough to about 3cm in height & cut out rounds using cookie cutter dusted with flour. Chill in fridge. Meanwhile preheat oven @ 180°C for 20mins.

6. Bake the scones for 15mins.

These scones are really soft & yummy. Even my 1.5yrs old niece love these! She munched on the scones happily & hold on to the box of scones tightly!

good to go with a cup of coffee ^^

cathysjoy said...

 美牙,Oh, that will be great! ;)

Jane said...

 Oh oh, goes well with some jam and whipping cream. However, I usually don't bother with the whipping cream. This looks good enough on its own!Btw, you forgot to add "raisins" in your list of ingredients. :p That's free play is it, as much as we like! :)

cathysjoy said...

Opps! Thanks for pointing out my mistake! Hahaha ;)

 I'm thinking chocolate scones for this month since its a month for chocoholics. 

cathysjoy said...

Haha, I thought of adding choco chips before as well but then in the end I wanted to use up my raisins in fridge instead :)
