Apple & Cinnamon Scones

Apple & Cinnamon Scones

Ingredients

125 grams of apple
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 tablespoon of sugar
450 grams of plain flour
3 teaspoons of baking powder
120 grams of margarine
1 pinch of salt
5 table spoons of milk
2 eggs

Making Apple & Cinnamon Scones

Set your oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Peel the apple and chop it into smaller pieces. Add it to a bowl with sugar and cinnamon. Mix well. Add flour, margarine and baking powder to a bowl. Mix together until it becomes a crumbly mass. Make an indentation in the mix. Whisk eggs and milk lightly together in a bowl or a cup. Add the apple to the egg and milk mix and pour it in the dent that you made in the crumbled dough. Mix well  until it all makes one dough.

Add the dough to a lightly floured work surface and roll it with a rolling-pin until it is about 2 centimetres thick. Stick out rounds ca 7 cm across, use a jar a cup or a christmas cookie form. Make as many rounds as you can, and fold the rest of the dough together, don’t knead it, and roll it out again and stick out new rounds. Do this until you’ve used up all the dough. The last one I just made with my hands. Add the scones to a baking tray covered in baking paper, brush milk on top and put the tray in the pre-heated oven. Let them sit for 12-15 minutes. When they are golden brown on top they are perfect. Take them out and let them rest on a baking grid. When they are lukewarm and ready to be eaten, cut them in half,and add a your favourite jam.

Tip: The scones freeze well. Just pop them in the oven, turn it on to 150 degrees Celsius and give them a 15 minutes.

Tip: #2 If the butter/margarine isn’t room temperature pop it into the microwave for a few seconds (only a few)
