Ask a Chef reveals the secrets of those dishes you ate in cafes and restaurants and wanted to try making yourself.
3 cups flour
6 tsp baking powder
¾ cup soft brown sugar
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup diced apple
1-1½ cups milk
2 cups soft brown sugar
Sift flour and baking powder. Rub in butter until the mix has a sandy texture.
Add sugar, cinnamon, walnuts and apple. Add enough milk to combine to form a soft dough.
Roll and cut or shape as desired. Bake at 180degC for 20 minutes.
To make the caramel sauce, melt butter and sugar over low heat. Bring to simmer and cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and beat in cream until smooth.
Pour over the warm scones.
