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!

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!

About us:

My name is Sarah and in 2011 my husband Ryan and I decided to buy and re-fit an old motor home - we named it Waki and now live in it full time in the UK!

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>>
