Apple Filled Scone Cake

I've got this really great scone recipe. Totally always consistent when I make them, as I looked at three apples staring at me on the kitchen counter, I had an epiphany! Why not use this basic scone recipe for an apple cake! Made perfect sense to me. Hello the birth of apple filled scone cake!

The next thing I had to figure out was how to get more apple flavor in it without buying more apples. I mean there were three small ones, nice organic crispy apples, and I knew they'd be delicious. But, still not enough to make it a 'filled' cake. Next idea? Why not use some unsweetened organic applesauce. And, that's exactly what I did.

So, this cake, which as you can see is very rustic and organic looking, nothing fancy, is absolutely delicious! While I'm not a baker by any stretch of the imagination, I can put together flavors and textures that will come together to, hopefully (operative word), a fabulous creation. This one fell square into that category. We had been invited to a dinner party, and I was charged with bring dessert. It got yummy reviews! And, the good thing about this cake, it's so moist! And, it will be perfect warmed for breakfast. Hey, think about frying and crumbling some bacon bits on top!
