Chocolate Raisin Scones

Chocolate Raisin Scones

An Autumnal twist on the classic scone with jam and cream! Packed with flavour that still goes perfectly well with a cuppa!

Here’s what you’ll need to get started;

  • 225g GF plain flour
  • 60g sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
  • pinch of salt
  • 75g butter
  • 150ml milk
  • 85g raisins
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp mixed spice
  • 1 egg, beaten

Preheat the oven.

Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt in a bowl. Add in the butter and rub together with your fingertips until breadcrumbs form.

Stir in the milk, then add in the raisins, mixed spice and cocoa powder. Mix gently until a soft dough forms. Knead briefly and then roll out onto a floured surface.

Use a cookie cutter to shape 8 round scones. Beat the egg and brush over the top of each scone.

Place on a greased baking tin and bake for 16-18 minutes until the tops are golden.

Serve warm or cold. Enjoy!
