Raspberry Ripple Scones

Hello everyone! A delicious simple and fast recipe for you today. A classic with a twist, Raspberry Ripple Scones. A classic buttermilk scone rippled with fresh raspberries with a hint of vanilla. Top with jam and cream for a delicious snack!

You couldn’t get an easier recipe than a scone right? So simple and delicious. You can definitely leave out the raspberries throughout the scone for a classic buttermilk scone! Top with anything you like. I love a scone smothered in butter but also ADORE a raspberry jam and whipped cream topping.

Cooking time! I have left a rough guide on cooking time as all ovens may vary. I can tell if a scone is cooked if it has a nice golden top, a golden even base that when you tap it sounds hollow. Also if I press down in the centre of the scone it springs back slightly. If you over mix your raspberries in the scone it may cause extra moisture and longer cooking times so try not mix them in too much.

  • Bowls
  • Baking tray
  • Baking paper
  • Fork


  • 500 grams Self raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 50 grams Caster Sugar
  • 115 grams Salted butter Cold and cubed
  • 225 grams Buttermilk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 Egg
  • 75 grams Fresh or Frozen Raspberries
  • Jam & Cream to serve


  • Preheat your oven to 200C/180C Fan. Line a baking tray with parchment.
  • In a small bowl whisk together your buttermilk, vanilla and egg. Set aside.
  • In a larger bowl add in your flour, baking powder, sugar and cubed butter. Rub the butter into the flour until you have smaller lumps of butter. Various sizes of clumps is what we are looking for.
  • Make a well in the centre of your large bowl and then pour in your wet mix. Using a fork gently bring the mix together.
  • Once it has formed a dough VERY gently fold through the raspberries then pour the mix onto a counter top.
  • Fold the dough together very gently to form a smooth ball then using a rolling pin or your hands flatten down. This recipe makes 6 very large scones that are nice and thick. So using a round cutter make 6 even scones with your dough while flouring the cutter on every stamp. The less you work with this dough the better.
  • Add your scones onto your baking tray and brush with an egg wash on top (Optional)
  • Bake for approx. 20 minutes or until the base has a nice colour. See cooking notes above!
  • Leave to cool then serve with jam, cream & butter or whatever is your go to! Enjoy!
