Eggless Raisin Scones



Here are eggless and delicious scones on the second day of blogging marathon #13. Raisins could be easily replaced by any other dry fruits / nuts or even chocolate chips. Even though my younger one would have been glad if I went with the latter one,  I did not want to overdose this week with chocolate based recipes. And so here we go with raisin based ones. My son happily devoured these scones while the daughter was sulking that they were not chocolate chip version. :)

Ingredients: (8 scones)
2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
A pinch of salt
1/2 cup butter (vegan margarine for vegan version)
1/3 cup milk (or any non dairy milk for vegan version)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup raisins (I used dark & golden raisins.)

Method:
* Preheat the oven to 375 deg F. Grease the baking sheet and keep aside.
* Combine the first five dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Then add the remaining ingredients and just stir until blended. Do not overmix. 
* Transfer the dough onto a working surface and shape it into one inch thick circle.



* Slice the dough into eight wedges and place them on the baking sheet. I don't bother to seperate the wedges before baking since they come off easily after baking.
* Bake until golden brown or for about 20 minutes.
