Oat Raisin SconesFrom barmybaker 8 years ago
- 12 1/2 ounces all-purpose flour shopping list
- 1/2 ounce baking powder shopping list
- 1/4 ounce baking soda shopping list
- 1/4 ounce salt shopping list
- 4 1/2 ounces sugar shopping list
- 9 ounces unsalted butter, chilled shopping list
- 7 1/4 ounces old fashioned oats (I haven't tried these with instant oats, so I cannot say how they would work with them) shopping list
- 6 ounces raisins (or you could use any other dried fruit that you like. I also like to use chopped dried apricots in these) shopping list
- 6 ounces buttermilk shopping list
- 1 egg, beaten, for brushing over the scones shopping list
- sugar for sprinkling on before baking (I like to use turbinado sugar as it gives a nice sparkle and a bit of crunch. Pearl sugar would be very nice on these also. Regular granulated would also do in a pinch, just use it sparingly) shopping list
How to make it
- Line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper.
- Preheat the oven to 400f.
- In a large bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.
- Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse pea sized chunks.
- Add the oats and raisin and mix just a bit to combine.
- Pour in the buttermilk and mix until just blended.
- Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and pat out into a rectangle about 1 1/2 inches thick.
- Cut the scones into triangle-esque shapes and place on the prepared sheet pans leaving about 1 inch between each scone.
- Brush the tops of the scones with the beaten egg and sprinkle each one with sugar.
- Bake for about 12 minutes or until nicely puffed and golden brown.
- Best served the day they are made.
- The scone dough can be cut out and frozen before baking for up to one month, just layer the dough between parchment sheets and wrap it well with plastic film or place it in an airtight container. Allow to thaw in the refrigerator overnight before eggwashing and baking..

mmmmmmm.......delicious!magali777 in Mexico loved it
These are excellent! The oats add a great texture in addition to flavor. Made this for breakfast today and enjoyed them immensely. I did need 8 oz buttermilk to get them to come together rather than 6 but otherwise made them exactly as written. T...morehroth521 in loved it
