I don’t know why, I was always intrigued by Scones.Even though I had never tasted them, I wanted to try and make them some day.I came to know of scones while watching a TV program. I guess the curiosity could be because I always look at baking as a challenge and so wanted to take up this one as well. So that was the prelude to this episode. 🙂

Scone is a small Scottish quick bread especially popular in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Belgium and Ireland. (Courtesy: Wikipedia). After a bit of research, I decided to try out a simple Scone recipe from Manuela’s blog, Manu’s Menu. This is a simple bread with a hint of sweetness.I served it with Homemade Apple Sauce.I was very pleased with the result. Recipe follows.

Instructions
  1. Sieve the flour (and the baking powder)and put it in a mixer together with the butter..
  2. Mix for a few seconds, until the butter gets absorbed by the flour..
  3. Addsugar and milk and mix until combined..
  4. Then transfer the dough onto a floured surface. Knead for a couple of minutes (adding a little extra flour if required) until you get a soft but not sticky dough.
  5. Pat the dough down into a sheet of 2 xbd cm in thickness (1 inch).
  6. Cut the dough into rounds with a scone/pasta cutter.
  7. Shape the leftover dough into a slightly thicker sheet and cut out the remaining scones.
  8. Place the scone rounds on an oven tray with their sides just touching each other (this produces a softer sided scone and helps to support them). If you prefer crisp tops and sides, place the scones apart from each other on the oven tray.
  9. Brush the top of the scones with a little milk.
  10. Bake in a preheated oven at 220C for 12-15 minutes or until the scones are golden brown.
  11. Place shredded apples in a medium saucepan over medium low heat.
  12. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  13. Then add water and cook until the apple bits become soft and mushy.
  14. Stir in brown sugar and mix well.
