So, the other weekend I was hanging out at home and it just felt like one of those days where there should be scones for lunch. It just sort of felt like a day that if I went back in time to when I was six or seven, that my grandma would be serving up some scones, with jam and cream. Is that weird, or do you know what I mean?
Now, truth be told, I have never made scones myself. People say they can be tricky, which I think is what had put me off making them in the past. My mum makes Lemonade Scones so I decided to give them a go, and man are easy! I should have not been so sill and made them much sooner! I thought I would try out using Lemonade made using my Soda Stream for the recipe and it worked perfectly. The scones were so light and fluffy, and were an absolute hit in my house. I’ll definitely be making this recipe again and again!
4 cups self raising flour
Pinch of salt
300 ml cream
300 ml lemonade (or, try soda water or L&P)
Preheat the oven to 220°C and line a tray with baking paper.
Starting with the flour, place all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix together to form a soft dough.
Tip the dough out onto a well-floured bench, dust the dough lightly with flour, then roll out into a rectangle approximately 4 cm thick.
Cut the dough into 12 pieces and gently place each piece apart on the prepared baking tray.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven an leave to cool on a wire rack. Serve with butter, jam and whipped cream!
