  • 250 g self-raising flour
  • 60 g butter
  • 4 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 apple
  • 100 ml whole fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons natural yoghurt


  • Preheat oven to 220C
  • Peel and core the apple and cut into 1 cm cubes.
  • Rub the flour, sugar, and butter together with your fingers tips in a large bowl until the mixture resembles fine crumbs
  • Add baking soda, cinnamon and apple, then stir to combine.
  • Pour in milk and stir quickly, then fold the dough over a few times until it becomes smoother.
  • Tip onto a lightly floured surface; pat into a circle about 3cm deep.
  • Use a 6cm cookie cutter into some flour, then cut out scones - flour the cutter each time.
  • Gather the offcuts and press lightly back together, and repeat until all of the dough is gone.
  • Place on a baking sheet, then brush the tops of the scones with yoghurt.
  • Place centred in preheated oven for 12 minutes until golden


Note: use the smooth side of the cookie-cutter as this will allow the scones to rise better when cooking
