Oscar's squashy apple scones


Our apple tree is full of apples so my little boy and I decided to bake together for the first time and use up some of our delicious crop. These simple scones are as light as air!

Step 1

Mix the flour, baking powder, bicarb of soda and caster sugar together.
Add the butter in little chunks and mix together with fingers until it looks like breadcrumbs

Step 2

Slowly add the milk until you get a smooth, wet mixture - try to stop your child from licking their fingers at this stage!!

Step 3

Plop out onto a floured surface. Flatten the dough mixture and fold and knead for a minute.

Step 4

Use a dessert spoon to roughly choose the size of your scones and drop into a muffin tin. Add a little brown sugar for the top of the scones.

Step 5

Bake for 15 minutes. Try to stop your child from opening the oven.
Then butter and squash into your mouth as fast as you can.


I like to add just a little taste of brown sugar on top of these scones before baking to add a bit of extra sweetness, especially if the apples are still bitter.
