Weekends are to celebrate! After a long week of work, having fun in the kitchen, trying a new recipe is a good way of sharing love with your family.
This recipe came out without planning. I opened the cupboards and the fridge and let my imagination flow. The requirements were: to cook something warm, healthy and sweet. I looked at the ingredients I had in the cupboard, likely I had flour, bicardonate of soda, sugar, apples, cinnamon, milk and a tiny amount of butter. I had all the ingredients to bake an Apple Scone Round! It took me about 20minute to prepare it and another 15min in the oven. I prepared a cup of coffee and after taking all the pictures to share with you, I enjoyed a delicious slice (or two) of this amazing scone.
I'm an apple dessert fan! My favourites are apple pie, apple cake and this one is now part of my list.
