Feel that wind? Winter is nigh… so let’s make apple scones!
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1/4teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder (note: no need to add this if you are using self rising flour)
- 3/4 cup milk
- Juice of half a lemon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
- 1 Apple, chopped into small cubes
- 1 cup raisins or sultanas
- 1 egg, whisked for egg wash
At this time, heat your oven to 190 C / 370 F. We decided to use a greased muffin tin so we would have evenly shaped scones, but you can just as easily form them by hand. Next, whisk an egg and brush it on top of each scone for a lovely golden color when done. Bake for 14 minutes and proceed to eat!
And there you go! Freshly baked apple scones using hand a picked apple given to us from a friend’s tree. This is a perfect treat to enjoy hot from the oven on a cold, blustery day. The recipe makes about 6 scones. We ended up doubling the listed recipe because I think carbs are great! This is also an easy recipe to change if you want to add something other than apple and raisins. Maybe chocolate chips and walnuts, or pecans and toffee nibs perhaps? Or cranberries and almonds – this would be a nice combo for Thanksgiving morning. Any way you bake it, I hope you enjoy trying your hand at some scones as the weather begins to get chilly. Stay tuned for more treats Bristol! I’ve got a special cake coming up soon. In the meantime, thanks for reading and Happy Eating!
