Tea Scones - by Safiya Motala

Tea Scones

I don’t know about you, but a strong cup of black tea with milk is almost guaranteed to make me think of scones. Scones are quick to make (takes about 15 minutes), and made with ingredients you likely already have in your house. Fresh baked scones are delicious served right out of the oven with a dollop of butter or heavy cream, but also great with jams or other spreads. The great thing about this recipe is you can make it sweet or savoury, and add ingredients of your choosing.

My favourite way to make these scones is exactly as the recipe dictates, but adding in a handful of raisins. When using dried fruit, it's helpful to soak it in a cup of hot water for 5 minutes or so to help soften them up before you add it to the batter. 

Basic scones

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425°...
