Irish Apple Scone Recipe: A Simple, Tasty Expression of Irish Flavors
This Irish apple scone recipe reflects traditional Irish thriftiness, and also satisfies the typical Irish sweet tooth!
This dessert embodies the best of Ireland
because it doesn’t use any expensive imported fruit as ingredients –
just the simple apple, one of the few fruits
that grows well in the Ireland climate.
Unlike other types of scones, the entire mixture is
baked “in one piece” and then cut into sections after you remove it from
the oven and sprinkle it with sugar.
I don't know about you, but my mouth is watering. How about we go make one of these?
Irish Apple Scone Recipe: Ingredients
- 1 ¼ rounded tsp. baking powder
- 3 tbsp. butter or shortening
- 2 oz. white or brown sugar
- 1 cup grated or minced apple
- For the topping you’ll need 1 tsp. melted butter and
granulated sugar to taste.
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Fahrenheit. Butter a 9x9-inch square baking pan.
- Sift flour into a mixing bowl; then
add salt and baking powder. Blend in the butter or shortening, then add sugar
and mix again.
- Add the beaten egg to the milk and
mix well; add the egg mixture and apple into the flour mixture. Blend
everything together until you have very moist dough.
- Spread dough in the 9x9-inch pan and
place in oven; bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Pop out onto a cutting board after
allowing it to cool only slightly.
- Brush the top with melted butter and
sprinkle generously with granulated sugar. Cut into nine sections and serve
buttered, while still hot.
