I had baked this scones tonight and pre-post this. Browsing through a few scones recipes, I decided to opt for this recipe as it was the easiest one, plus no refrigeration was needed. We do not realy fancy those fanciful scones, just purely plain scones or the ones with chocolate chips do just fine for us:-p
Joining along for the Bake Along #27, let's find out the recipe for this chosen recipe:-D
I had replaced the fruit with chocolate chips instead, as if I used raisins or cranberries, none will eat them.. This is the 3rd time I had made scones, and this recipe wasn't not too bad but it would be have better if I made the scones thicker. And also if I had watched the heat of the oven... hehehe.. Otherwise texture of the scones will be soft & crumbly, which will make it very delicious.
These chocolate chips scones do go very well with the jam, or even perhaps with butter or cream cheese.
Having half of the portion of the recipe, it yields about 10 small little mini scones.
Here is Mimi, having her fair share of her food tasting the moment she sees these scones... hahaha....
200g self raising flour
50g caster sugar
50g margarine (I used butter)
1/4 tsp of salt
100g raisins (I used chocolate chips or simply palin scones)
1 medium egg
5 tablespoon of milk
Step 1. Preheat oven at 220C.
Step 2. Sift the flour into a large bowl, mix well with the sugar. Cut the butter into small little cubes. Using fingertips to rub the butter with the flour mixture into crumbles.
Step 3. Add the chocolate chips, mix well.
Step 4. Beat the egg, and take out a spoonful out for brushing the scones later. Beat the egg and mix well with the milk. Pour it into the flour mixture.
Step 5. Mix well and knead it into a dough.
Step 6. Roll it out flat, about 1.5-2cm thick. Using a round cuuter to cut out the shape for the scones.
Step 7. Place the shaped dough on the tray and brush them with egg wash. Bake in the oven for about 10 mins or until they are golden brown.
Note: Do try to bake at the recommended heat and timing as indicated.
