Spiced Fresh Cream Apple Scones


8oz Self Raising flour

2oz Butter

2oz Brown Sugar 

2 teaspoons Baking Powder

1 apple – peeled and either finely diced or grated (I used a Bramleys cooking apple but for a sweeter taste Pink Lady or Gala are nice) 

1 egg – beaten 

Milk – 150ml would be more than enough. 

Mixed spice –   Good heaped teaspoon for both the scone mix and the cream.

Fresh Cream 

Jar of apple sauce or some freshly made stewed apple.


Preheat your oven to Gas Mark 7.  

Into a bowl put the flour, butter, sugar, baking powder and rub together until it forms a breadcrumb like texture.   Add in the apple and mixed spice and stir well.  

Place in the beaten egg and a little of the milk.  Stir until it forms a stiff dough, adding milk gradually until you get the dough formation. 

Place a little flour onto your work surface and tip the dough mixture onto the same.   Either using a rolling pin or your hands press lightly until it is about an inch / inch and a half thick.     Using a round cutter of your chosen size, cut out rounds and place onto a lightly greased baking tray.   I used quite a large cutter so you get a good sized scone, but smaller ones are just as nice.  

Place into the oven and cook for about 10/15 minutes.   Take out and leave to cool. 

Once cool, place the cream into a bowl with the teaspoon of mixed spice and whisk until thick. 

Take each scone and cut in half.   Place on a spoonful of apple sauce and using the back of the spoon spread over. Then add a good dollop of whipped cream.   Replace the top of the scone and serve.    You can also finish with a sprinkling of icing sugar on the top.  

Happy Baking.   Enjoy x
