Prepare the ingredients as required. I used full cream milk in this recipe.  Dried raisins can be substitute with any other dried fruits or nuts. Butter – preferred to be little cold will do.

Preheat oven to 200 Celsius for 10 minutes first.

Grease the tray with little butter. Use a spoon to scoop up some scones batter and place it on the baking tray, about 4-5 cm diameter each scones. Ensure to give enough space between the scone as it will rise during baking process. Brush the top with some egg yolk.

Bake the scones between 190-200 Celsius for 12-15 minutes (depends on individual oven). Bake till the bottom of scones turn slightly brown. Once baked, transfer them to wired rack and let it to cool.

Tips : Avoid to expose the raisins on the scones surface, as the raisins easily get burns during baking process. If possible push the raisins within the batter while scooping them on the baking tray.
