Raisin Scones from the Irish Baker Abroad

Irish Baker Abroad

From Chris, The Irish Baker Abroad

This is my go to scone recipe. It’s easy, delicious, quick to make and they look great. With a few simple ingredients you can conjure up a batch of these for your friends and family in no time. 

Chris’s Raisin Scones

Recipe

500g | 4 cups of Plain Flour

30g | 3 heaped tsp of Baking Powder

Pinch of Salt

80g |  ⅓ cup + 1tbsp of Sugar

100g | 1 stick of Butter

2 Eggs

200ml | ¾ cup of Buttermilk

150g | 1 cup of Raisins

Method

Sieve the flour and baking powder together in a bowl. Grate the butter in to the bowl and rub it in with your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add the salt, sugar and raisins. MIx in with your hand or a fork. Beat the eggs then add them to the buttermilk. Give this a stir and add it to the bowl. Combine with a wooden spoon and once the mixture comes together shape it round on a floured surface. You can be generous with the flour. Roll the dough down to a thickness of about 2 ½ – 3 cm and cut out using a 7cm round cutter. Place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and brush them with some Eggwash. Place them in the fridge for about 30 minutes or while you preheat the oven

Bake at 200 C / 392 F for 18 minutes

Fan oven – 180 C / 356 F

Baking powder already contains an acid unlike bicarbonate of soda. So you can use either regular milk or buttermilk. I find that buttermilk makes them soft and fluffier. For a sourmilk buttermilk substitute add 1.5 tbsp of vinegar or lemon juice to 200ml of regular milk. Stir and let it stand for about 10 minutes before adding it to the dry ingredients

All the best

So my scones come out great while warm but the next morning are always sort of stiff and warming them doesn't help. Should I or can I get them to be good the next day??
