Recipe for Easy Peasy Lemonade Scones

As requested, here’s my recipe for the lightest, fluffiest scone ever. Make a double batch as they tend to get snatched up very quickly.

Lemonade Scones
·300g (2 cups) self-raising flour, sifted
·55g (1/4 cup) caster sugar
·125ml (1/2 cup) thick cream
·125ml (1/2 cup) lemonade
·40ml (2 tbs) milk

Method

Step 1.
Preheat the oven to 220°C. Lightly grease a baking tray.

Step 2.
Place the flour, sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add the cream and lemonade and mix to form a soft dough.

Step 3. Turn out onto a lightly floured workbench and knead lightly until combined. Press the dough with your hands to a thickness of about 2cm. Use a 6cm round cutter to cut out 8 scones, place on baking tray and brush the tops with some milk.

Step 4. Bake for 10-15 minutes until lightly browned.

Cheers Bernieh..they look lovely..We don't have lemonde much either,so a small can will be ideal..do you ever add sultanas to yours,or are they better just plain ?

Fantastic! Thanks bernieh.

Pamg, yes it's the bubbles in the lemonade that makes this recipe work so well. The thick cream helps too!!

Bloomer, I've never added anything to them. I just slather them with lovely jam and a dollop of cream. I've tried all sorts of jams and they all suit perfectly.

You're very welcome, Stickitoffee. I hope you get to try out the recipe.

sounds lovely..i can see the sales of lemonade in the uk is going to rocket today...lol

28 Oct, 2012

 

I shall certainly be trying it out, looks really yummy, thank you.

28 Oct, 2012

 

Sandra, I'm only too glad to help with the dwindling sales figures for lemonade. Of course, those who make their own home-made lemonade will in no way contribute to the sales.

Stickitoffee, they're always a hit with visitors!

i think they might be with me too! i wondered about doing yoghurt instead of the cream for a diet version?? would that work?

28 Oct, 2012

 

Not sure, Sticki, but it's worth a try. Light cream cheese might work as well.

28 Oct, 2012

 

I've just bookmarked it,for further reference..I will be having a go at some point ..thanks .:o)

28 Oct, 2012

 

yes that sounds really nice, thank you. i will let you know how i get on.

28 Oct, 2012

 

In my faves for later. Many thanks Bernieh, How about using Elmlea cream? (lower in fat!)

28 Oct, 2012

 

Good point Gran, I,ll try it next time I make scones

28 Oct, 2012

 

They sound yummy Bernieh, adding to favourites so I can give them a go when I get some cream, who'dve thought you could use lemonade in scones!!!!

28 Oct, 2012

 

Not sure if it will work Pam, just that Sticki. suggested yoghurt and it got me thinking. :)

28 Oct, 2012

 

Thanks Berni will certainly be giving these a try, added to my favourites;0)

28 Oct, 2012

 

Gone to my favs too , Bernieh .

28 Oct, 2012

 

I hope you all enjoy them as much as I do.

28 Oct, 2012

 

Thanks for the recipe Bernieh, will definitely try these scones.

29 Oct, 2012

 

Let me know how they go ... and how they go with variations for those who are going to try different things instead of the cream.

29 Oct, 2012

 

beautiful and light, thanks bernieh, incredibly light! i made them with stewed blueberries ~ blueberry cobbler. the only thing that i would say about the yoghurt [plain] was it seems to have made the scones fairly soft ~ no crisp edge?

30 Oct, 2012

 

Adding stewed blueberries sounds delicious, Sticki. It seems that adding yoghurt works fairly well though. Thanks for letting us know how yours went.

30 Oct, 2012

 

you're welcome, thanks again

30 Oct, 2012

 

I made my first batch this afternoon Bernieh and just had one for my tea, they're delicious,thanks for the recipe can see the way they're going they'll be a favourite here too :-)
The blueberry variation sounds nice Sticki I'll be trying that next :-)

25 Nov, 2012

 

YUM they look so good! Can't wait to try them

25 Nov, 2012

 

Kidsgran, I'll keep your secret! Sometimes it's best that the parents don't know. Hope your scones turn out well.

26 Nov, 2012

 

Pip, I've been making scones for eons, and this is by far the best recipe and make the best scones. I do so hope you enjoy your batch.

26 Nov, 2012

 

I am going to try these with the grandchildren today. Thanks for putting this recipe up.

28 Nov, 2012

 

You're most welcome, Homebird. Just one little hint, the less kneading the better for this recipe.

28 Nov, 2012

 

They were delicious and so light despite 4 little hands squashing and squeezing the dough. Only ended up with 7 though...probably due to all the tasting as we went along... Thanks Bernieh I will definitely be using this recipe in future..

29 Nov, 2012

 

So glad it worked out, Homebird. Sounds like those little hands did a great job.
