Red Prince Apple Gem Scones with Clotted Cream
The Red Prince apples used in these scones make for a light and moist biscuit. Paired with clotted cream, a traditional English spread, these Red Prince Apple Gem Scones are the perfect treat to serve at a mid-day bridal shower or afternoon tea party.
2 Red Prince apples, cored and finely diced 2
2 tbsp lemon juice 30 mL
2 tbsp brown sugar 30 mL
1/4 tsp cinnamon 1 mL
2 cups all purpose flour 500 mL
2 tsp baking powder 10 mL
1 cup milk 250 mL
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar 30 mL
1/2 cup salted butter, frozen 125 mL
demerara sugar for sprinkling, optional
clotted cream, for serving
In a medium-sized bowl, combine apples with lemon, sugar and cinnamon and let sit.
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour and baking powder, set aside.
In a small bowl, combine milk and apple cider vinegar; let sit for a few minutes.
Grate frozen butter and add to flour mixture, stirring to combine.
Drain the Red Prince apples and mix into flour and butter to coat. Pour milk into dry ingredients mixing with a fork until just combined being careful not to overwork the dough.
