This Raisin Walnut Scone Recipe is used during weekdays at the restaurant.
The scones are not a regular item on the menu but rather part of a featured item at breakfast.
Preparation time: 25-30 minutes. Makes 12 scones.
Tip: To accurately measure flour (dry ingredients), spoon it lightly into a dry measuring cup and level with a spatula or the back of a knife.
Tip: If a recipe calls for sifting several dry ingredients, just put all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir with a whisk. It is much quicker and easier.

Did you know? Scones became popular and an essential part of the fashionable ritual of taking tea in England when Anna, the Duchess of Bedford (1788 – 1861), one late afternoon, ordered the servants to bring tea and some sweet breads, which included scones.
She was so delighted by this, that she ordered it every afternoon and what now has become an English tradition is the “Afternoon Tea Time” (precisely at 4:00 p.m.). They are still served daily with the traditional clotted cream topping in Britain.
