Wholewheat Raisin Scones

A healthier alternative to the conventional scone.
Wholewheat Raisin Scones
You will need:
175g self raising flour
175g nutty wheat flour
85g cold butter (cubed)
175ml milk/buttermilk
1/4 tsp salt
3 Tbsp castor sugar
70g seedless raisins
1 egg mixed well
Method:
Combine dry ingredients, excluding raisins. Add cubed butter and rub into dry ingredients using fingertips until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add raisins. Add milk or buttermilk and mix to form a soft dough. If the mixture seems too dry, then add a dash more milk. Place dough onto a floured surface and pat down to form a rectangle about 2cm thick. Cut out scone shapes with a scone cutter, place on a baking tray, brush with egg wash and bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 15-20 minutes. Enjoy with jam and cheese or jam and cream.
