While away we called a friend who invited us for tea. She said "come over in half an hour". When we got there, there were fresh baked scones on the table. I couldn't figure it out - how did you get that done so quickly? She told me it's the easiest recipe ever and of course, I had to have it. From start to clean up - 1/2 hour.

What I particularly like about this recipe is that they're good second day - although I really doubt they'd last that long. Mine didn't even make it to a plate.

1 egg
3 Tbsp sugar
2/3 cup milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
pinch salt
1/2 cup oil
1 cup raisins

mix flour and baking powder together in one bowl

In second bowl mix all other ingredients; add dry ingredients to wet and mix together with a fork just until flour is incorporated.
(Don't over mix or they'll get rubbery)
Drop in heaping tablespoons to a prepared baking pan (I used non stick spray)

Bake in 400F oven for 15 min.

Note: You can add dried cranberries, blueberries, cherries or any combination. This is a fun recipe to make with kids - instant gratification.

Makes 1 dozen

Scones are just so handy to knock up aren't they. I often throw some savoury ones together to eat with soup. Yours look lovely

I am always looking for delicious scone recipes. Scones in my kitchen can often be a crumbly disaster but there are a few tried and true recipes.

That really is simple. Even makes a non-baker like me think I could do this. And I love scones.
