  • 1 cup whole wheat flour - دقيق القمح الكامل
  • 1 cup sour cream - قشدة حامضة
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder - باكينج باودر
  • 1/2 cup raisins - زبيب
  • 1 pinch salt - ملح
  • 1/2 cup walnut - عين جمل / جوز

Step by step

  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Line a flat oven tray with parchment paper. Soak raisins in hot water for 10 minutes. Roughly chop walnuts.
  2. Sift flour then add baking powder and salt. Add sour cream and mix it lightly. Don't over-stir in order to keep a fluffy texture.
  3. Dry raisins by squeezing water out with your hands and add to batter along with the chopped walnuts. Make sure the fruit and nut are fully incorporated into the mix.
  4. Using a tablespoon, transfer scones on to the tray (put a heaped tablespoon for each) leaving some space in between. Garnish with the wheat flakes that resulted from sifting the NM wholewheat flour before placing the tray in the middle of the oven.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until it is cooked through, remove from oven and let it cool for 10 minutes before serving.
