Fruit Scone Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 Cup unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 Cup raisins (or other berries or fruit)
  • Butter melted, as needed
  • cream cheese as desired
  • strawberry jam as desired


  • Mix the flour, baking powder, butter, and sugar together in a bowl, until the mixture looks like crumbs.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs and buttermilk together. (Note: If buttermilk is not available, you can substitute it with a mixture of 1 cup fresh milk and 1 tablespoon vinegar or fresh lemon juice. Let sit at room temperature for 10 minutes until curdled.)
  • Add the liquid to the crumb mixture.
  • Continue to mix the dough, until it is smooth.
  • Add the raisins, and mix until evenly distributed.
  • Remove the dough from the bowl, flatten the dough, and leave to rest for approximately 30 minutes.
  • Roll out the dough to a thickness of 2.5 centimeters and cut to desired shape. Rest the scones for another 20 minutes.
  • Gently brush butter on top of the scones.
  • Bake in a preheated oven (350 degrees F or 180 degrees C) for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Cool before serving with cream cheese or clotted cream and strawberry jam.
