A Simple Lemonade Scone Recipe

These Lemonade Scones are ideal for morning, afternoon, or high teas with friends. They are beautiful fresh out of the oven with jam and cream. People these days tend to think that scones are old fashioned, however, I don’t think that scones will ever go out of fashion. They are easy to whip up and bake and I would encourage anyone to try them. This recipe is great because of the small number of ingredients. Thanks to Elenor for giving me this recipe, they were a hit with my guests. Enjoy!

Ingredients

3 cups self raising flour

1 cup of cream

1 cup of lemonade

Method

Sift the flour into a bowl making a well in the middle

Pour in the liquid ingredients and combine with a spoon

Do not overmix

Take the mixture out of the bowl and onto a lightly floured board

Roll out the dough to approx 1 cm thickness

Pop the scone cutter into flour and cut out the scones (do not twist the cutter)

Place on a tray approximately 1.5 cm apart

Bake for 12 minutes at 200 Celcius

Hints

Use a baking sheet to keep the scone tray clean

If the dough seems dry add extra cream or lemonade

For a wet and sticky dough add extra flour

Suitable for normal sized scones or mini scones

Do not leave too much of a gap between scones

Place them close so that they rise rather than spread

Do not open the oven door during coooking

Not all ovens are the same. Some cook hotter and others cooler
