Apple Scone Cake - no eggs recipe

Apple scone cake - camping recipeWhat do you do when you have no eggs but fancy a baked cakey treat? This is what you do!

Scone Cake might not be the most attractive of cakes but then looks aren't everything are they? It's a great way for using wild foraged apples or making use of any eating apples that are past their best. I reckon it would make an excellent base for using up ANY fruit you need to use so feel free to experiment! 


The recipe itself uses very little sugar, getting its main sweetness instead by the crunchy topping of brown sugar mixed with cinnamon (if you like cinnamon, personally I leave it off as I can’t stand the stuff!). Enjoy with a cuppa, or covered in custard in typical British fashion!



200g plain flour

2 tsp baking powder

75g sugar

50g butter

1 large grated apple / 2 or 3 small

4 tbsp. milk (you may need more depending on how wet the fruit is)

a pinch of salt


Brown sugar and extra milk to glaze

+ optional pinch of cinnamon on top and in the mix



1. Sieve together the flour, salt, baking powder & cinnamon if using.

2. Rub the butter into the flour mix to form breadcrumbs. Add the sugar and grated apple.

3. Add enough milk to form a dough and roll or pat into a 20cm round lump, then place on a greased baking sheet.

4. Brush with more milk and sprinkle generously with brown sugar. Bake for 20 mins in a moderately hot oven.

5. Remove from oven and sprinkle with more brown sugar, allow to cool.

Cut into slices and enjoy with a cup of strong tea, or swimming in custard!
