Recipe Ingredients for Orange-Raisin Scones (from EatingWell.com)

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup raisins
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 cup nonfat plain yogurt, plus extra for brushing scone tops
1 large egg
1 tablespoon freshly grated orange zest

Recipe Directions for Orange-Raisin Scones (from EatingWell.com)

  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

  2. Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a mixing bowl. Add raisins (or currants), tossing to coat. Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, swirling the pan, until it turns a nutty brown, about 1 minute. Transfer the butter to a bowl. Add oil, 1 cup yogurt, egg and orange zest and whisk until blended. Add the yogurt mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring just until combined (the dough will be sticky).

  3. Transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet; with floured hands, pat it out into a 1/2-inch-thick circle. Cut the circle into 12 wedges, leaving them in place. Brush the top with yogurt. Bake until the top is golden and firm to the touch, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve warm.
