How to make it

  • Place the apple and blackberry in a saucepan with the water and caster sugar.
  • Bring gently to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes to just tenderise the fruit.
  • Remove from the heat and transfer to a deep round ovenproof dish such as a souffle dish.
  • Preheat the oven to 190 C, 375 F, Gas Mark 5.
  • Place large spoonfuls of mascarpone cheese on the apple and blackberry mixture, keeping them separate where possible.
  • Place the flour in a mixing bowl, stir in the sugar then rub in the butter.
  • Add the cinnamon.
  • Stir the buttermilk or milk into the scone mixture to form a soft dough.
  • Divide the mixture into eight and using two spoons place the rounds of mixture onto the apple and blackberry, mascarpone mixture.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes until the scones are well risen and golden brown.

    Simply lovely, midge. And you're definitely right that these would make for a perfect "tea" accompaniment. My thanks and my five, my friend.
