Devonshire Apple Scones

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by MarieRynr

These roughly shaped spicy scones look more like rock cakes than conventional scones and the chopped apple gives them a pleasant, moist texture.

I made these yesterday as my boys are always hungry when they come home from school. I used white selfraising flour and for the apples i used a cup of apple sauce so they came out more like muffins. But lets just say they went down well as they only lasted a few mins and the kids can't wait for me to make some more. So thanks for a great kid pleaser im going to keep this one.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Set oven to 375*F or Mark 5.
  2. Mix the flour, cinnamon and baking powder together in a large bowl.
  3. Rub in the butter, stir in the sugar and apple and lastly stir in the egg.
  4. Mould into 10 or 12 small rough heaps (as you would for rock cakes) and place on a floured baking sheet.
  5. The mixture must not be too wet or the scones will lose their 'rocky' shape.
  6. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
  7. Allow to cool slightly before transferring to a wire rack.
  8. Serve split in half, with butter.
