We love seeing our talented customers be creative with our Chai Walli products to make such delicious treats. Rukzana aka @thewelldressedtales is a passionate home cook and avid gardener from Melbourne who has crafted this sensational recipe using our 11 Spice Chai.
- 2 cups of plain flour
- 1-1.5 tbsp of Chai Walli's 11 Spice Chai
- 2.5 tsp of baking powder
- 3 tbsp of sugar or Jaggery
- 1 tsp of salt
- 1/2 cup of butter - chilled (in small cubes)
- 1/2 cup or cold milk
- 1 egg
- A handful of raisins/sultanas
- Preheat the oven to 190 degree Celsius.
- In a bowl add the flour, baking powder, chai spice, sugar and salt. Mix them together. You can also sieve them.
- Add the butter, cut into 1 inch cubes. With both hands rub the butter cubes with gentle pressure into the flour mixture until all the flour is evenly coated. Make sure the butter doesn't melt. Alternatively you can pulse the flour mixture and butter in a food processor for 2 to 3 times (not more than that). *Expert tip: Let the flour turn crumbly with bits of butter chunks still remaining. Don't over do. You need the butter chunks for good scones.
- Whisk the milk and egg together. Keep a tbsp aside for brushing later.
- Make a well in the flour mixture. Pour the whisked egg and milk and quickly mix with wooden spatula. When they come together transfer them to the working surface dusted with flour.
- Flatten the mixture into one inch thickness. Don't knead it - simply cut them into round or triangular shape. Press some sultanas on the top.
- Brush the remaining egg and milk mixture all over the scones on the top and the sides.
- Bake for 15 minutes at 190 degree celsius.
Serve warm with jam and whipped cream or with butter
Ideal scones should raise well, pull apart easily but doesn't crumble.
