With the Royal Wedding coming up Red Prince Apple is going all out with recipes to get you in the festive mood! Here is their recipe for Scones with Clotted Cream – a real british treat!


2 Red Prince Apples, cored and finely diced
2 TBSP Lemon Juice and brown sugar
1/4 TSP cinnamon
2 cups flour
2 TSP baking powder
1 cup milk
2 TBSP apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup butter, frozen, salted
Optional sugar for sprinkling and clotted cream

Preheat oven to 425°F (218°C).

 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, add milk and apple cider vinegar; let sit for a few minutes.

 Grate frozen butter and add to flour, 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.

Roll dough to 1-inch (2.5 cm) thickness and with a cookie cutter cut into 1 ½” (3.5 cm) rounds. Sprinkle with sugar (if desired) and bake for 15 minutes or until bottoms are light golden brown.

Serve with clotted cream and good quality tea.
