Mix the pancake mix and sugar together in a bowl.
Add the vegetable oil, milk and raisins. Knead well by hand, then bring the dough together.
Roll it into a round, and then slice it into sixths with a knife, as if you were slicing a cake. It won't cook through if it's too thick, so make it around 12 cm in diameter.
Line up the pieces on a baking tray lined with foil, and bake for 4 minutes in the toaster oven.
Take a look at it and cover with foil if it looks like the surface is about to burn. Bake for another 4 minutes, and it's done!
If you'd prefer a milder sweetness, omit the sugar. It'll still be mildly sweet that makes it perfect for breakfast.
You can top the scones with nuts, chocolate chips, cornflakes, etc. Or add cocoa or matcha to the dough. The possibilities are endless!
Story Behind this Recipe
One morning, I had a sudden craving for scones, so I tried making them with pancake mix. It only took 15 minutes. Not only that, the taste was not much different from れあl scones!
This time I used low-fat milk. You can use melted butter instead of vegetable oil if you'd like. Adjust the baking time to suit your toaster (mine is 1000 W). Make sure you check on it after 4 minutes.
