A perfect and quick to make scone recipe which pleases everyone! Yummy scones for breakfast, teatime or any time of the day with an incredible easy recipe!
Recipe type: Breakfast, Teatime
Cuisine: Irish
Serves: 12
  • 450 g flour
  • 1 sachet baking powder (1 Tbsp)
  • 50 g sugar
  • 50 g softened margarine
  • a pinch of salt
  • 300 ml milk
  • 100 g of raisins
  1. Preheat oven to 220° C.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together, except the raisins, they should be added last. I just use a fork to work the dough. It should still be wet but dry enough to handle!
  3. Just use two tablespoons to form big balls and put them on a baking sheet covered with baking paper.
  4. Bake the scones for 12-15 minutes. They are ready if the top and bottom is golden - don't bake them too long! Enjoy :)
You can leave the raisins out if you don't like them or substitute with nuts or other dried fruits! Serve the scones with butter, whipped cream & jam! In the pictures I served them with lemon curd.
