1.Preheat oven to 220°C. Lightly grease and line an oven tray with baking paper.
2.Sift flour and ground cinnamon into a medium bowl. Stir in brown sugar. Using fingertips rub butter into flour mixture. Stir apple through, reserving 2 tablespoons.
3.Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture. Pour in milk and mix to a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface and gently knead into a 13cm square, about 4cm high. Using a floured knife, cut into 9 squares.
4.Transfer to oven tray. Brush with a little melted butter, sprinkle with reserved apple and cinnamon sugar. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until scones are well-risen and golden. Transfer to wire rack to cool slightly. Serve warm with jam and yoghurt.

Be careful not to overwork the dough – use gentle, soft hands to ensure a light result. These are best eaten on the day they are made.
