Come and get your fresh lemonade... and cream... scones

These scones really are fail-proof. They are so quick to whip up and surely beat rubbing butter into flour. You can use diet or normal lemonade, depending on dietary requirements.

Lemonade & Cream Scones

3 cups of SR flour

1 cup full fat cream (at least 16% fat)

1 cup lemonade

1 pinch salt

Sift flour and salt into a large bowl. Make well in centre. Pour cream and lemonade into well. Mix with knife until combined. Turn onto lightly floured work surface and knead until dough is workable consistency. Cut scones using a small glass/scone cutter. Bake in hot oven (220 c) for approx 10 minutes or until lightly golden on top. Serve with butter or jam and cream.


Mix in a generous handful (or so) of your favourite grated cheese for yummy cheese scones

Perfect scones and total prep, cook and clean up time is about 20 minutes.
