Donald's Milk Scones


  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 cups sifted flour + flour for work surface
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup raisins or currants
  • Milk and sugar for tops


Preheat the oven to 450°.

Combine milk and egg.

Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. With a pastry cutter or two forks, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal.

Add raisins, then the milk and egg combination.

Mix quickly with a fork until dough clings together.

Turn out onto a floured surface and knead very lightly 8 or 10 times (gathering it together more than kneading).

Place the dough on a floured surface, sprinkle lightly with flour and gently roll out or pat into a sheet 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 2-inch rounds.

Place on baking sheet lined with parchment. Brush the tops with milk and sprinkle with sugar.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Serve warm, and split, with lots of butter and jam.
Yields 12 scones.


Try this but don't forget to wear a pinny when cooking
