These scones taste better than those from your local bakery -- and you do not even have to change out of your pajamas! You can make many variations of this recipe by adding different fruits, sprinkling cinnamon prior to baking, or trying whole wheat flour. Get creative and have fun.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted (1/4 cup)
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk

Directions

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  3. Combine the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Mix well.
  4. Add raisins and mix lightly.
  5. In a small bowl, combine melted butter and buttermilk. Add liquid ingredients to flour mixture; mix gently.
  6. Spoon dough into 9 equal mounds on a greased baking sheet. Bake until well browned, 18-20 minutes.
  7. Serve hot or at room temperature. Best eaten the same day you bake them.

Notes

Substitute vegetable oil for the butter to reduce saturated fat.

Try other dried fruit.

Sprinkle with cinnamon before baking.

Try mixing in 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon or orange zest (grate the outer colored part of the peel).

No buttermilk? Place 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar in measuring cup and fill to the 1 cup line with milk. Stir and let set to thicken slightly.

Whole-wheat flour can be replaced with all-purpose flour.
