Fluffy & Light Fruit Scones

I'm Back!! After a bit of a break from blog land. 

I baked some yummy scones this morning for friends that are visiting later today. My sister loves this recipe and says it makes the best light fluffy scones ever. I'm not so into scones but I do bake them regularly for her.

To make six large scones:

300 g self raising flour
3 tablespoons of sugar
Half cup of raisins soaked in hot tea
pinch of salt
3 eggs
butter/ milk to mix ( use butter if using shop bought milk or just milk if using heavy jersey milk)

Mix the ingredients together until it looks like the above photo. The raisins should be strained first. It should be fairly wet.
Dust the work surface with flour and gently shape the dough without working it too hard.
I used a cup to cut out the scones.
Place the scones onto a flour dusted oven try.
Glaze with milk and sprinkle with sugar.
Place in the oven for 20 mins at 200 degree.

Enjoy with a cup of tea xxx


  1. Scones with clotted cream and jam, thats the way to enjoy them but only freshly made scones, I dont like them when they are a few days old and dry like those they do in the supermarket.

    1. I only recently discovered clotted cream on our holiday to the south of England. It is yummy!
      It is not available here unfortunately, although maybe that is a good thing as I'm sure the calories are scary. Can it be made at home? What is it, cultured cream?

  2. I like this recipe because it does not have baking powder in the recipe, which I think leaves a not very nice taste to the scones. Like you, I am not fussed with scones, but I shall try this recipe to see if I can become converted!

    1. I agree with you Vera, it leaves a salty taste.
