Yes, Iam trying my hand's on baking. Iam getting very tensed, when the stuff is in oven, like i was in exam hall. i have successfully burnt cookies in my previous attempt's. Luckily my cake's are always moist and they never let me down. These Scones is one such milestone, it came out so well, my hubby and my kid liked it very much when served with Kissan Jam.
These Scones are made in Microwave in high for 2 min's and again placed in grill mode for 2 more min's. Adding Raisin's to scones is a Classic Touch, i somehow added some grated fresh, sweet coconut, Thou i cannot feel the coconut, the flavour was great.
[This recipe is tried in Microwave]
All Purpose Flour - 1 cup
Baking Powder - 1/2 tsp
Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp
Butter (Chilled) - 4 tbsp's
Powdered Sugar - 3 tbsp's
Butter Milk - 2 tbsp's
Raisins - 1 tbsp
Grated/Scrapped Coconut - 2 tbsp's
Olive Oil - 1 tbsp (to brush on top of scones)
Sift the flour with baking powder and baking soda.
Now add Powdered Sugar to the flour and mix.
Add Chilled Butter little by little and mix with the flour. The flour should change as Bread Crumb's in texture.
Now add Raisin's and Greated Coconut to the Flour and Mix well.
Add Butter Milk and mix the flour and knead it into a soft dough. Dont be hard to the dough.
Now dust some flour and roll them or just pat the dough with your hand's to form a 1 inch thick circle.
Have a Cookie Cutter( I just used my Round Mouth Tumbler) to cut them into a Round shaped.
Place the Round Shaped Scone's in a Baking Sheet and Microwave them for 2 minutes in 900W (Very High). Let them sit and get set in the Microwave for 2 more minutes. Get them out and cool them.
Apply Olive oil on top of the scone's.
Pre-Heat the oven to 200W and place the scones for 2 minutes. and completely cool them for atleast five minute's.
Cut the scones into half and fill them with Jam of your choice and serve.
* Don't Sift Whole Wheat Flour, as all the fibre content's get filtered, and there is no use in using Wheat Flour.
* When i used Egg, these scone's came out crisp, but i did'nt like the egg smell that came along.
