Eggless Apple Walnut Scones



Bake-a-thon is a yearly baking series headed by Valli during December and I have been a part of it for the past two years. There will be a total of 13 baking recipes on Monday, Wednesday and Friday till the month ends. Since the last post was more related to the UAE National Day, I thought I would rather move the details of the series in this post. πŸ˜€ You can find all the posts related to the previous years here. While the first year, I did random posts out of the burgeoning drafts, I focused on chocolate bakes last year, and this year, I am doing based on the theme of individual servings. Just like the Khameer I posted as the first one…


As soon as I had started jotting out my posts for this series, I wanted to bake a scone, and somehow it had to be apples. I don’t know where I got this fixation with apple. πŸ˜€ In fact, I do love apple bakes, they rank a close third after banana and carrot bakes. If you ask me my favorite apple cake I have baked so far, I would surely rank this one on the top. πŸ™‚ OK, so coming back to the scones, after dreaming for a few days, I got to bake these when I had taken a sick leave from work. True, baking is a little bit of work, especially when it comes to the cleaning part. But this recipe is more of a one bowl bake and hence is less work. I made these with wholewheat flour and even then they were soft and perfect with a cup of hot black tea.


Before moving to this recipe, if you love scones like I do, then here are some that are already on the blog…

Author Rafeeda


  • 1 cup wholewheat flour
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp cornflour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 30 gm cold butter
  • 1 large apple peeled and grated
  • 2 tbsp chopped walnuts
  • 2-3 tbsp yogurt as required
  • Sugar and cinnamon powder for sprinkling on top


  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Line a tray with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a bowl, sift together all the dry ingredients (from flour to cinnamon powder)
  • Grate the butter into the flour and rub it in to resemble bread crumbs.
  • Add the grated apple and walnuts and mix well. Squeeze with hands so that the apple releases its fluid into the dough.
  • Add 2 tbsp yogurt and bring the dough together. Use more as required to just bring it together - do not knead.
  • Pat onto the prepared tray and shape into a round. Cut into six wedges.
  • Bake for 20 minutes for soft or 25 minutes for crispier.
  • Cool slightly and serve.
