How To Make Lemonade scones

How To Make Lemonade scones - Lemonade adds a touch of zingy sweetness to this non-traditional scone recipe, which uses cream instead of butter and is super quick to make. These sweet and delicious scones are delicious hot from the oven.
Serving Size: 12

  • 1 cup of lemonade (not flat)
  • 1 cup of cream
  • 3 cups self-raising flour
  • Handful of sultanas (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to very hot 220°C.
  2. Mix flour, a few sultanas if used, cream and lemonade. Mixture will be soft
  3. Turn onto a lightly floured board. Pat down, do not roll. Use a round cookie cutter to cut scones.
  4. Brush tops with milk or a lightly beaten egg.
  5. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until tops are golden

When you turn the mixture out onto the kitchen bench, dust it again with more flour so it isn’t too sticky to cut up. This will allow you to get a lovely ‘scone’ shape.
I prefer using egg to brush pastries as this makes them more golden after cooking.
According to my husband, my ‘handful’ of sultanas was not enough, so if you’ve got a family keen on sultanas, add a 1/3 cup of sultanas instead!
These scones are wicked straight out of the oven with a slathering of butter (yum!).
