Apple Griddle Scones Dripping with Butter

by Permanent Posies on April 16, 2012

Griddle Apple Scones

Welcome to The Secret Recipe Club reveal day.  Each month, I am assigned to another blogger and my instructions are to choose one of the recipes she (or he) has blogged about……and re-create it, adding my own spin to it, if I want.  This month, I was assigned to What’s Brewing in the Kitchen and I have looked at many of the recipe posts she has written.  I saw so many things that I wanted to try that I had a hard time deciding which to cook.

Amy, from Virginia, is the cook on What’s Brewing in the Kitchen and cooking is her passion (like mine).  She started her blog to have a virtual cookbook and has found herself in the company of lots of Foodies with the same goal. 

So, I went with her Apple Scones. Two reasons……I have a lot of apples and I have had a hankering for a good scone. And…..oh, my, my……these were delicious scones! I think Amy got the recipe from The Apple Cookbook. I made need that cookbook.

For one thing, these scones are cooked on a griddle in butter.  Really?  So the outside is browned and a little more done than the inside.  The inside remains very moist.  Then, dot them with butter.  Yea…..more butter…..and serve with a little hot tea.  I chose Orange Spice, which went nicely with Cinnamon/Nutmeg flavored Apple Scones.

Here is the recipe.  You won’t be disappointed.  Thanks Amy!


Apple Griddle Scones
Recipe Type: Bread
Author: The Apple Cookbook @ What’s Brewing in the Kitchen
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup Honey Flavored Greek Yogurt (or plain….or buttermilk)
  • 1 large apple (I used Fuji)
  1. Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg into a bowl. Add the sugar and mix.
  2. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles large crumbs.
  3. Add the egg and yogurt and mix well.
  4. Peel, core and finely chop the apple. Stir into the yogurt mixture.
  5. The dough will be pretty sticky.
  6. Divide the dough into 8 even pieces. On a floured surface, pat the dough into a 1/2 inch thick round or football shaped piece. Because they are so sticky, you won’t be able to roll these or do much with them. Flour your hands and the surface really well.
  7. Heat a griddle or heavy skillet over low to medium heat. Melt butter on it and cook the scones for 5 minutes, until they are golden brown on the bottom. Turn and cook for 4 minutes longer, serve warm.

These sound amazing! Almost like a cross between a scone and a pancake, yum!

I’ve never seen scones like this before. They remind me of fritters and the apple and cinnamon combination is a real favourite of mine.

These sound great! Love the apple flavoring. They sound really easy too, thanks!

These sound great and what a different way to make them. Apple and cinnamon is always a great combo

Those scones look delicious. I didn’t realize that they could be made in a pan. That’s almost not-baking, so I might try it. I thought the pan was reserved for English muffins, crumpets and Welsh cakes :-)

Your apple griddle scones look absolutely scrumptious. I like the idea of the lovely crisp outside and the soft tender inside, and the spices sound fantastic. What a great accompaniment to a cup of hot tea!
