Apple Scone Cake

Apple scone cake - camping recipeWhat do you do when you have no eggs but fancy a baked cakey treat? Make apple scone cake of course!


This recipe is another great way for using any wild foraged apples or making use of any eating apples that are past their best. I would even go as far as to saying it would make an excellent base for using any fruit you need to use! 


Cover in a crunchy layer of brown sugar and cinnamon (if you like cinnamon, personally I leave it off as I can’t stand the stuff!) and enjoy with a cuppa or covered in custard in typical British fashion!

2 tsp baking powder

75g sugar

50g butter

1 large grated apple / 2 or 3 small

4 tbsp. milk

a pinch of salt

+ optional cinnamon

Brown sugar and extra milk to glaze



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

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

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

4. Brush with remaining 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 tea, or swimming in custard!

We live neither on or off-grid, rather somewhere in between, and are not the first and I dare say not the last to choose this way of life... read more>>
