I would like the apple scone recipe from the Lakeside Inn in Mount Dora. Thank you. Julia Steinwachs
This is not the apple scone recipe from the Lakeside Inn but Eleanor Pielak's apple cinnamon scones are delicious. These have more of a cake-like texture rather than the drier insides of a traditional scone. They are quick to make and are perfect for a weekend morning treat. From start to finish, including baking time, they only take about 30 minutes. That includes the prep work. My apple choice for baking is a tart Granny Smith but you could use your favorite baking apple. Eleanor didn't specify an apple so I went with the Granny Smith. To quickly incorporate the butter I used a pastry blender but your hands will work just as well.
