Apple Scone Cake

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

It might not be the most attractive of cakes but then looks aren't everything are they? 


This recipe is a great way for using wild foraged apples or making use of any eating apples that have slipped 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 so feel free to experiment! 


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!
