• 1 cup all-purpose white flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup soft margarine (at room temperature)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 2/3 cup skim milk (keep 2 teaspoons aside for brushing the tops of the scones before baking)


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Sift the flours into a bowl with the baking powder and salt, tipping any leftover bran into the sifted mixture.
  2. Lightly rub in the margarine with your fingertips until the mixture has the consistency of fine bread crumbs.
  3. Mix in the sugar and raisins (the same quantities of dried mixed peel can be used instead) and add the milk a little at a time, mixing well until a soft dough is formed.
  4. Turn out onto a lightly floured board and roll out to a thickness of 3/4 inch. Using a 1-1/2-inch pastry cutter, cut out the scones, re-rolling the leftover dough as necessary until you have used it all.
  5. Place the scones on a lightly greased baking sheet, brush the tops with a little skim milk to glaze, and bake near the top of the oven for 15 - 20 minutes until golden.
  6. Cool on a wire rack until the scones are just warm, then serve.
