Scones + Muffins = Scuffins?

So originally I was going to review a book I am reading but the day got away from me and I did not manage to finish it. Instead I thought I would make some scones. I am pretty happy with how they turned out because I tried putting them in a muffin tin to make sure they ended up in a nice interesting shape. I can confirm they do indeed taste pretty damn good. Here is the recipe for anyone interested.

125g butter unsalted

2 cups of self raising flour

half cup of sugar

1 teaspoon of baking powder

pinch of salt

raisins to preference. I use a large handful, you can add more or less depending on how fruity you like it.

1 large egg

40ml milk

3 tablespoons of cold water

Mix the butter with the flour, sugar, raisins and baking powder until it is in crumbs. Mix the egg and milk, pour in and mix until it starts to form together, add the cold water and mix. Finish with your hands until it is a large ball in the centre of the bowl. At this time I just use my hands to create 6 equal balls and pop them into the cupcake tin.

Make sure your oven is nice and hot at 185C and put the scones in for 15 minutes. Remove them, put them on a rack and then enjoy with jam and a nice cup of tea. Not bad even if I do say so myself.
