Apple Strawberry Scones

Posted 2015-12-12 by DamienRfollow

These scones are sweet, tart and perfect for dessert or breakfast!



Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Makes: 8 scones

Ingredients
2 cups fresh Strawberries
1 cup apple
2.5 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbs granulated sugar
3 tbs packed brown sugar
1/2 cup cold butter
1/2 cup buttermilk

Topping
1 tsp granulated Sugar
1 tsp brown Sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Method
  • Preheat the oven to 190°.

  • Rinse and cube apple and strawberries. Cubes should be between 1 and 2 centimetres squared.



  • TIP: Any kind of apple will do, but if you like tartness to your dessert, as I do, then Granny Smith apples are best.

  • In a large bowl stir the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, granulated sugar and brown sugar

  • Add butter and blend using a pastry blender until butter and flour mixture are clumped into small crumbs.



  • Stir in chopped fruit.



  • Add buttermilk and stir together until dough is a moist ball.



  • TIP: I sometimes add additional fruit. It can be hard getting so much fruit to stick into the dough. An extra tablespoon or two of buttermilk helps hold it all together.

  • Move dough ball to a cookie sheet and flatten into a pizza-like circle between 22 and 24 cm round.



  • Cut the circle into 8 wedges using a floured knife.

  • Sprinkle the granulated sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon over the dough, then separate the wedges, allowing some room for the scones to grow as they cook through.



  • Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick poked into the centre of the scones comes out dry.

  • (optional) Once out of the oven, sprinkle icing sugar over the scones.
