Ingredients
  • 2tbsp Asda Authentic Greek Yogurt, plus extra for spreading
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 75g light brown soft sugar
  • 200g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ½tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 small Bramley apple, cored, grated and excess juice squeezed out
  • 3tbsp semi-skimmed milk
  • ½tsp vanilla extract
  • 15g pumpkin seeds
  • Blackberries, to serve
Method
  • Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Line a baking tray with nonstick baking paper.

  • Beat together the yogurt, egg and 50g of the brown sugar and set aside.

  • Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and cinnamon into a large bowl. Stir in the apple and add in the egg mixture, a little at a time.

  • Tip the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until just smooth. Roll into a rectangle and cut into 8 squares.

  • Put the squares onto the tray, spaced evenly. Brush with 1tbsp of the milk.

  • Bake for 20-25 mins, until golden brown. Leave on the tray to cool.

  • For the glaze, put the remaining sugar, milk and the vanilla into a small pan. Heat gently on a low setting until the sugar has dissolved. Turn off the heat and leave to cool.

  • When the scones are cool, drizzle with the glaze and sprinkle on the pumpkin seeds. Serve with yogurt for spreading, plus blackberries on the side.
