Golden Raisin and Bacon Scones

Having never made scones before, I wasn’t sure how this recipe would turn out. Luckily, it worked. Thanks bacon!

These Golden Raisin and Bacon Scones are a great sweet-savory treat around breakfast time.


  • 2 1/4 cup self-rising flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 6 TBSP butter (the colder the better)
  • 1/2 cup cooked bacon (drained)
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • Golden Raisin and Bacon Scone Dough

  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour and sugar. Using a fork, cut in 6 tablespoons of butter until mixture looks like coarse crumbs.
  3. In a small bowl, combine bacon, golden raisins and walnuts.
  4. Stir 1 cup of bacon mixture into the flour mixture. Set remaining bacon mixture aside.
  5. In another small bowl, lightly whisk egg and cream together. Make a well in the flour mixture and pour in egg-cream mixture. Stir with a fork until the mixture is moist.

  7. Divide dough into two balls of the same size.
  8. On a greased cookie sheet, place dough balls about 3 inches apart and pat each one into an 8-inch round.
  9. Using a knife dipped in flour, cut each round into 8 pieces, but do not separate.
  10. Sprinkle remaining bacon mixture over each round then bake 14-16 minutes until edges are light golden brown.
  11. Carefully separate each round into 8 pieces. Serve warm with fresh jam.

Scones make a great grab-and-go breakfast option if you don’t have time to prepare a full breakfast every morning.

Scones are also very customizable. You can easily substitute in the ingredients of your choice when making this recipe.
