Soda Bread Raisin Scones

Makes 5-6 scones


  • Preheat oven to 250°C or as hot as it will go
  • 250g plain white flour
  • 100g raisins
  • 80g unrefined caster sugar
  • 7.5g bicarbonate of soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 125g natural yoghurt
  • 125g whole milk


  1. Combine all of the dry ingredients together, add the wet ingredients and mix well, but do not over mix.
  2. Quickly tip the mix out onto a well floured surface and sprinkle flour over the top.
  3. Press down till about 1 inch thickness.
  4. Take a pastry cutter and press out the scones onto a baking tray, around a couple of cm apart. Make them whatever size you like.
  5. Shape lightly into high rounds and place into the oven.
  6. Bake for approx 10-15 mins or until golden.

Delicious as a scone - buttered, then jam & cream (you choose the order!)
