You really can't beat homemade scones! These are so much better than the ones in the shops and they are dead easy to make. Apple and blackberry is a winning combination too... it'll be a struggle to even let them cool down without tucking in.
Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Peel, core and cut the apples into small dice. soak the sultanas in the milk.
Sieve the flour, baking powder and salt into a big bowl. rub the butter into the flour to resemble breadcrumbs.
Stir in the sugar, chopped apples and scoop out the sultanas adding those as well. Make a well in the centre of the mix and pour in the milk, mixing until you have soft dough.
Bring it all together until smooth and roll out on a floured surface to 3cm thick.
Cut scones out with a cutter (about 5cm across) and lay on floured baking tray.
Brush with beaten egg and bake for 16-18 minutes until they sound hollow when tapped on the bottom.
Cool on a wire rack and serve with cream and jam. Makes 10
