Delicious apple crumble scones with apple chunks, cinnamon, and crumble topping – the right autumnal afternoon tea bake. 

Oh HELLO THERE! Sure that’s proper, I’ve gone totally into autumn baking as its now formally autumn.. and I’m SO HAPPY about this! 

Actually I’m such an autumn child (my birthday is late October) and its when the leaves begin falling, the climate is getting cosier and oh my days all the apple associated baking… together with these unhealthy boys; apple crumble scones. 

I’ve a brand new studio kitchen (in case you don’t already know from following me on social media) and there are such a lot of apple timber right here that I’ve been advised to nab all of the apples from… so right here we’re. DELICIOUS. 


In terms of baking with apples, I almost all the time are likely to bake with Bramley Apples (or cooking apples as they’re typically referred to as). These apples have a tendency to want much more baking in comparison with different apples, and that’s why they work.

I’ve my favorite consuming apples (I’m a pink girl kinda gal), however typically baking with consuming apples implies that they’ll turn out to be mushy and much too tender too rapidly. 

As a result of the apple goes into scones, I reduce the apples into 1-2cm measurement chunks to allow them to be distributed pretty evenly however then additionally bake to the right texture. 


In order everyone knows, scones are one of the vital iconic elements of a cream tea or afternoon tea..; and these beauties are simply going to stage it up much more. I’ve many scone recipes already equivalent to my traditional buttery scones, my lemon blueberry scones and even my white chocolate and cranberry scones… however these ones? life altering. 

They’re surprisingly simple to make and don’t take numerous work in any respect – and also you don’t want a mixer. You should rub the dry substances collectively fastidiously together with your fingertips to create a breadcrumb like combination, after which add within the moist substances to create a dough. 

I exploit a spatula to combine within the moist substances as you actually don’t need to over work the dough. If you find yourself ‘rolling out’ the dough, you may also merely pat the combination onto a frivolously floured floor so that you simply don’t compress it an excessive amount of. 


As soon as your scones are made and formed, you might want to add the crumble. That is the cosy component of the scones – the place you’ll be able to both use a store purchased packet of crumble combine, or make a small quantity of crumble combination. 

I usually use the 1:1:2 rule when making crumble of butter, sugar and flour. As you want such a small quantity you may make a crumble combine for this with 40g of sugar and butter, and 80g of flour rubbed collectively to make a crumble. 

Calmly brush the scones with crushed egg, after which sprinkle over and pat on the crumble combine.

The best way to bake & serve

Scones are finest baked right into a preheated oven, but in addition onto a preheated tray. The warmth of the tray helps shock the scones into form and to then trigger the scones to go upwards as they bake, not sideways. 

They bake till golden and exquisite, and though sure they’re finest served ever so barely heat, you don’t need them piping scorching and recent out of the oven as they do proceed to bake barely while cooling. 

You may clearly serve scones nonetheless you fancy… cream first? jam first? the everlasting debate. Nevertheless, I like cream and blackberry jam with these as a result of the mixture is completely scrumptious. 

Suggestions and Tips

It’s finest to make use of a cutter and never twist the dough out – ensure that to make use of a floured cutter in order that it comes out simply. 

Be sure that to preheat the tray like talked about above, and line it so your scones don’t stick.
