These mouthwatering apple scones are light yet hearty and the most flavourful of the bunch. Fresh apple keeps them moist and buttermilk makes them super fluffy. Great for packing into the kids lunchbox as a sweet treat. See method
of the reference intake
Tip: To make traditional scones, pat out the dough with your fingers until about 2.5cm (1in) thick. Then use a 5cm (2in) biscuit cutter to cut out circles. Brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar, bake for 10-12 minutes.
Freezing and defrosting guidelines
Bake according to the recipe but stop before adding decoration or icing if called for. Allow to cool completely. Wrap well in clingfilm and tin foil (to prevent freezer burn) and freeze for up to 3 months.
Loosen the tin foil and clingfilm but leave to defrost in packaging at room temperature for several hours before serving. If you wish to serve the baked goods warm, place them on a baking sheet for 10 minutes in a moderate oven.
