Grandma’s Recipe – enjoy simple scones!
Simple Lemonade Scones
These scones are very easy, super quick and beautifully light. And they work every time. Mix up a quick batch for those unexpected drop-in guests, or give yourself a well-deserved afternoon tea treat! Imagine the aroma of warm scones with home-made jam, butter or cream – you’ll be surprised how quickly they disappear!
On the odd chance you do have any leftover, these little beauties freeze well – warm them gently in the microwave just before you want to eat them. Then enjoy them with a variety of different toppings. Jam and cream is the traditional, however they can be served with just about any spread you can imagine.
Sweet or savory are both acceptable, do vegemite & cheese under the grill for something different, or treat them like pancakes and serve with maple syrup (we have tried this and it’s delicious – just make sure they are warm). Experiment until you find your favorite, then you will never want to stop making them!
3 cups Self raising Flour
1 cup lemonade
1 cup cream
Preheat oven to 180c.
Sift flour into a bowl and make a well in the centre. Add the lemonade and cream.
Using a knife, mix the ingredients until a soft sticky dough forms. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead lightly, adding a little more flour if necessary.
Roll out the dough to approx. 3 cm thick and cut out rounds using a scone cutter, or glass.
Place rounds on a greased oven tray and cook for 20mins or until golden brown.
Transfer scones to a wire rack to cool.
This recipe makes 1 dozen large scones.
