Raisin Scones

I got out of bed on Sunday early morning, remembering that we didn't buy breakfast for the kids on Saturday. Flipping through my stacks of unfiled recipes, I was looking for scones. I remembered seeing some easy scones quite sometime back. Finally I found the recipe to bake-Raisin Scones from Fenying.

Hi Ju,
You've not baked scones? Aw, then you should try. It's one of the simplest bakes, maybe that's why you've not tried. You would prefer many other complicated bakes and cooks ya?

If there's one breakfast I won't say no to, it'd be scones. I never thought of adding raisins though. I'm sure my mom would love that!
