Matcha Cinnamon Apple Scones


Whoa! It's been way too long since I updated the blog. Honestly when residency started, I thought I would never come back to it because on the little free time I had off I just wanted to veg on the couch or sleep. I'm now on night float so I've been able to make things during the day and werk, werk, werk all night.

I'm also updating just in time too for my favorite season! I love, love sweater weather and all things cinnamon and pumpkin spiced. For my comeback, I've made these matcha cinnamon apple scones that were adapted from King Arthur Flour.
 Unfortunately the weather was rainy and dark, so these pictures aren't the best :(


Matcha Apple Scones

makes 16 mini scones

2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup white sugar
3/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp matcha (I used panatea culinary grade matcha)
1 stick cold butter (cut into pieces)
1/2 cup finely diced apple
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup apple sauce

turbinado sugar to top
Icing sugar mixed with a little milk

  1. In a large mixing bowel, mix flour, sugar, salt, matcha, baking powder and cinnamon. Cut cold butter into dry mix until crumbly. You'll have some larger chunks of butter but that's okay!
  2. In a small bowl, whisk eggs, vanilla and apple sauce. Add wet to dry ingredients, toss in chopped apple and stir until just moistened
  3. Line pan with silpat or parchment paper. Flour surface and your hands. Divide dough, which is pretty goopy) in half and pat each half into a 6" circle about 3/4" thick
  4. Brush each circle with milk and top with turbinado sugar. Cut each circle into 8 wedges and pull them apart from each other just a bit so there is some space
  5. Place scones uncovered into freezer for 30 minutes. This is important for best texture and rise!
  6. Preheat oven to 425F. Bake scones 20-24 mins or until edges are slightly golden brown
  7. Cool briefly on pan before transferring onto rack.
  8. I mixed some powdered sugar with a little milk to glaze on top

  1. Yay! I'm so glad you updated your blog although you've been so busy with your residency! :) I've never thought to combine matcha with apples and cinnamon, but those two are so good on their own that I'm sure all three flavors together will taste superb!
