Fruity Apple Scones – A Guest Post

Kate from Family Fever has recently added a fourth child to her family so she knows all about keeping the kids entertained during the school holidays.  Today she’s sharing a recipe for Fruity Apple Scones with you: 

Over the summer holidays the children love to bake and cook, but sometimes we want to try something different to the usual cakes, cookies and biscuits.  One of treats the whole family enjoys is scones, and these have a lovely fruity twist which appeals to kid and adults alike. 


  • 1 large apple
  • 75g butter
  • 375g self raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 75g caster sugar 
  • 1 egg
  • 150ml milk


  • Peel and dice the apple
  • Heat 25g of the butter in a saucepan, then add the apple and cook gently for 5 minutes until softened 
  • Put the flour, half the cinnamon and 50g of the sugar in a bowl
  • Cut the remaining butter into pieces then add to the flour mixture.  Rub between your fingers to make tiny crumbs 
  • Add the cooked apples and the beaten egg then slowly stir in the milk to make a soft dough
  • Tip out onto a floured surface, knead lightly then roll out to approx 1 inch thick
  • Cut out shapes with a cookie cutter and brush the tops with milk
  • Mix the remaining sugar and cinnamon together then sprinkly over the tops of the scones
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes at 200*C, cool and serve with jam (and cream if you feel naughty!)
These scones will keep for several days in an airtight container and make the perfect addition to lunch boxes, picnics and sneaky afternoon teas!
I’m definitely going to be trying out this recipe when we get back from our holiday!  If you’d like to hear more from Kate you can find on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook as well as her blog Family Fever, obviously!
