Makes 12 Scones
Preparation time: 15 min 
Cooking time: 15 min


  • 175 g low fat margarine (cold)
  •  225 g whole-wheat flour
  • 175 g plain white flour
  • 15 ml castor sugar
  • 2.5 ml salt
  • 12.5 ml bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 175 ml buttermilk
  • 25 g raisins


Pre-heat your oven to 200 °C.

Grease and flour a large baking sheet.

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the margarine and rub lightly between your hands until the mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs. Set aside.

In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and the buttermilk. Set aside 30 ml of this mixture (2tbsp) for your glazing.

Stir the remaining egg mixture into the dry ingredients with a blunt knife until it just holds together. Stir in the raisins.

On a floured surface press down the dough lightly (about 2 cm thick). Stamp out rounds with a cutter. Place on the prepared sheet and brush with the reserved glaze.

Bake in pre-heated oven for 12 – 15 minutes, until golden brown. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
