Apple and cinnamon scones recipe
Everyone loves a scone - particularly kids! And the great news is that these apple and cinnamon scones are one of the easiest things for little people to make.
- 2 cups (300g) self-raising flour
- 1 1/2 cups (225g) wholemeal plain flour
- 1/4 cup (60g) caster sugar
- 1 cup (250ml) cream
- 1 cup (250ml) mineral water
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 cup grated apple
Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced) and line a baking tray with paper.
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and gently work together into a sticky dough. Turn this onto a lightly floured work surface and again, gently roll out until about 4cm thick.
Dip a water glass in flour then use this to cut out about 10 scones. You will need to re-roll (gently) the dough a couple of times to use up all the off-cuts.
Place the scones right next to each other on the baking tray then pop them in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until lovely and golden.
- The less you ‘work’ this dough, the lighter and fluffier your scones will be so ask the kids to be fairly light handed with this! It really barely needs rolling, just flattening.
- You can use lemonade instead of mineral water but I find that they are sweet enough this way.
- Swap the apple with berries, finely chopped banana or grated pear.
