Raisin Scones 葡萄乾司康餅

When i first tasted this raisin scones given by my friend, i was so impressed and i would said this is the best scone that i have ever had. Buttery, crisp on outside, soft and fluffy inside, less sweet, so good. Thanks to my friend Jennifer so kind to share with me this wonderful scone recipe !






As for liquid in this recipe. My friend had tried with milk, yogurt, whipping cream, and she said the best result is use Buttermilk !!








If you have leftover scones till next day, best to toast it for a while, it will taste like freshly bake !

Hi Sonia, thank you for your sharing~ May i know what is buttermilk? where can get it?

maedecx said...

Hie Sonia, do you think can freeze and keep the dough in freezer for future bake? Or freeze the baked scones and re-heat later? Does these two method will alteres the taste and texture of the scones compares to the freshly make and bake??

Have a good day!

P/S: Always enjoying your short video clips on your instagram stories, especially all sorts of cooking/baking method which added to your recipe a clearer method of hands-on.

Hi pei wen, buttermilk is the liquid left behind after churning butter out of cream. You can get it at any major supermarket, usually at butter and cream cold storage section.

Hi Maedecx, better to freeze the baked scones , defrost then toast it and it will taste like freshly made. If you do not planning to store it longer, actually you can just store in the fridge, take out and toast it before enjoy.

Hi Sonia, i couldn't find buttermilk here. Can i use fresh milk instead? Thanks a lot

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Christine, just room temp water will do.

Isabella, you can use plain yogurt instead.

Hi Sonia, I tried it with plain yogurt , I need to use 2 cups to get it sticky, but I find that it doesn't rISE very high, do I need to increase the baking powder??
