Raisin Scones

In the past we made this Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Scone Recipe from scratch. Good for sure but a lot more work than this one. Being able to start with a mix that already has the leavening agents inside makes baking that much easier. Let’s call it semi-homemade shall we. Easy to tweak with different add ins and nobody will know the difference. 😉

If you are new to this breakfast item traditionally served with tea, let’s talk about them for a quick second here. They are not fluffy like Bisquick Muffins, the texture is quite different. Some say they are dry, but if made properly, dense is a better term. The baking time is crucial so they aren’t dried out, so stay close to the oven at the end.

How to Make Scones with Bisquick

Only thought of using this yellow box for breakfast items? Think again. Way outside of the box you can make savory things with it too, even with meat and all!! Yep, from Taco Balls that also serve as a fun party food to chicken cobbler we have made it all friends. And will continue to add others as we go…..

As far as the mix goes there are other brands out there. Jiffy baking mix and Krusteauz are essentially made the same but are going to differ ever so slightly. You will probably not know the difference but some have a bit more sweetness to them…which you may actually like more. Try them all and see.

  • 2 c Bisquick baking mix
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1/3 c butter unsalted, cold, cubed
  • 1/2 c milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 c raisins optional, could use mini chocolate chips

Why do you use cold butter for scones? Using cold butter in scone recipes is a crucial step that plays a significant role in achieving the desired texture and flavor. When incorporated into the dough, it creates small pockets of fat. During baking, these pockets of cold fat melt and release steam, which creates flaky layers.

Pancake Mix Scones

What can you add to scones? Chopped fresh fruits like berries, apples, or peaches, or dried fruits like raisins, currants, apricots, or cranberries can add natural sweetness and texture. Semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips can make them delightfully indulgent. Add a splash of vanilla, almond, or coconut extract for an extra layer of flavor.

  • Preheat your oven to 425°F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl, combine Bisquick baking mix and granulated sugar. Mix well to ensure the sugar is evenly distributed.
  • Add the cold, cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Use a pastry blender or your fingertips to cut the butter into the mix until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Pour in the wet ingredients now like milk and vanilla extract.
  • Stir the mixture until just combined. If desired, fold in raisins or mini chocolate chips at this stage.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead it gently a few times until it comes together. Pat or roll the dough into a circle about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick.
  • Cut out scones from the dough with a sharp knife or pizza cutter and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Leave a little space between each.
  • Brush the tops with a little milk. This will give them a golden color during baking.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the scones are golden brown on top. Allow the scones to cool on a wire rack for a few minutes.

Could sprinkle tops of warm scones with powdered sugar or whisk together 1 cup powdered sugar + enough milk to thin into a glaze and drizzle on top. Serve with a cup of coffee and there you have your 20 minute scone recipe to make again and again for Brunch Menu Ideas.

Bisquick Scone Recipe

How to save leftover scones? Cool completely on a wire rack. Avoid sealing them in an airtight container while they are still warm, as this can create condensation and make them soggy. Individually wrap each in plastic wrap. This helps prevent moisture loss and keeps them from drying out. Place them in an airtight container or a resealable plastic bag. Make sure to remove as much air as possible from the bag before sealing it.

If you plan to consume within a day or two, you can store them at room temperature in a cool, dry place. However, be mindful of any fillings or toppings that may spoil if left out for too long. Or in freezer bags can be frozen for up to 2-3 months.

Should you chill scone dough before baking?

Chilling the scone dough helps to firm up the fats (usually butter) inside. When the scones are baked, these cold solid fat pockets melt and create steam, which gives the scones a flaky and tender texture. It also can make it easier to work with, to shape and cut more easily when it’s firmer.

Is Krusteaz the same as Bisquick?

Basically. Both are typically used to make pancakes but can be used as baking mixes for scones as we will show you here, crepes, funnel cakes and other treats. Krusteauz mix is a bit sweeter with a slightly higher sugar content, other than that you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference.

Is Jiffy Baking Mix the Same as Bisquick?

Not exactly but yes you could use them both in similar ways to make a bunch of different baked goods. They are both dry baking mixes used for pancakes, muffins and other sweets and could be substituted for one another if you only have one.
