Cook:

15 Min

Ingredients

16 ounces self-rising flour
4 ounces margarine
3 ounces sugar
2 eggs
5 ounces raisins or currants
1 teaspoon baking powder
milk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix flour and margarine together with your fingers until the mixture is fine; add sugar, raisins and baking powder. Beat eggs and add. Pour in enough milk to make mixture into a sticky dough (not too wet). Lift out onto a floured board and flatten out to 1-1/2" in thickness and cut out scones with a biscuit cutter. Place 6 on a greased baking sheet and brush tops with a little beaten egg (this helps them to brown). Bake 15 minutes in preheated 400~ oven.
