The Way Too Easy – No Butter Scone

Categories: Breakfast


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon (or other spices)
  • 1 1/4 cups raisins (or cranberries, chocolate chips, nuts, or a combination)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups cream, cold
  • 1-2 teaspoons flavored extract (vanilla, orange, etc.), optional
  • Topping
  • Eggwash (one egg beaten with one tablespoon water) or melted butter
  • Coarse sugar (can substitute regular sugar, just not as pretty)


  1. Preheat oven to 375d.

  2. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl, stirring in raisins or other add-ins last. Add cream and stir until ingredients are just combined. Form a ball of the dough and place on a floured surface. Flatten and then fold a few times, then flatten into a circle about 1” thick if you’re going to cut wedges, or into a log about 12” long if you’re going to cut rounds.

  3. Cut the circle into 8 wedges and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. If you formed a log, cut it into 8 equal pieces and put it on the parchment lined sheet. Brush the tops with egg wash or butter, then sprinkle with sugar. Bake about 15 minutes until golden. Let cool on baking sheet about 10 minutes before serving warm.

  4. Makes 8

  5. Make Ahead: Follow the recipe until you’ve formed the round or log. Wrap the dough tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour and up to overnight. Remove and proceed with the rest of the recipe.
