Raisin Cinnamon Scones

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Frank Troy

I adapted this recipe from a Extra Light Biscuit recipe in a cook book called Feasting Naturally . I added more wet substances and the outcome was great.

Just baked this one, what a nice change from heavier scone recipes I've tried, very light and tasty and yes, if you are baking in a convention oven - WATCH THEM! Mine took about 11 minutes. I didn't have vanilla yoghurt so used 4 small multi fruit flavoured ones and all spice versus cinnamon because I was lazy to grind fresh. I didn't use a muffin tin, just blobbed them on a oiled cookie sheet - made 7 nice sized scones that turned out great. Definately a repeat!
