Measure
600g Laucke CWA Scone Mix 4.2 cups
280g Water 280ml
250g Peeled and Grated Apples (Granny Smith or other sweet apple with some acidity) 2 medium
80g Chopped Pecan Nuts 0.7 cups
10ml Vanilla Essence 2 tsp
5g Cinnamon 2 tsp
12g Sugar 2 tbsp
5g Cinnamon extra 2 tsp
28g Butter 2 tbsp

Method

  1. Combine 600g pack of Laucke CWA Scone Mix, cinnamon, vanilla essence and water. Country Women know that excellent scones require more moisture and kneading than is common practice.
  2. Knead the dough vigorously until soft, smooth and sticky and you will be rewarded with softer, moister scones that stay fresher, longer. This is easily achieved in a Mixer with a K type dough hook, mixing for 3 minutes at medium speed.
  3. When kneaded, mix in the apple & half the chop the nuts
  4. Leave to rest for 5 minutes then divide into two greased tins 24 x 7cm & press the remainder of nuts on top
  5. Leave for another 5 minutes then bake at 200C (fan forced) for 30 mins. Brush tops with butter & sprinkle with sugar & cinnamon
