For The Love of Bread & ButterPosted: April 6, 2011
My first scone-baking experience. I have been looking for a simple biscuit/bread recipe to use for Sunday morning breakfast or brunch. This recipe does not even require an electric mixer! Where have you been all my life?!
- ½ C sour cream
- 1 egg
- 2 C flour
- 6 T sugar
- 1 t baking powder
- ½ t salt
- ¼ t baking soda
- ½ C raisins
- 1 stick of butter
(Butter should be frozen for flakiness and to easily grate using a cheese grater.)
Combine the sour cream and egg and set aside. Put all dry ingredients together in a bowl and combine. Grate the cold butter into the dry ingredients then add the egg/sour cream mixture. Roll the mixture onto a lightly floured surface but be gentle.
Make a 7-8” circle or square and cut into 8 pieces. Bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes on a middle rack so not to scorch and enjoy!
