Sunday Baking - soft, tender freshly baked Lemonade Scones - Ridiculously easy recipe

Lemonade Scones


512g Flour, sifted
4t Baking powder
Pinch salt
300ml double cream
300ml lemonade or soda water


Sift flour, Baking Powder and salt together several times to aerate.
Make a well in the center and pour on cream and lemonade.
Mix until a soft dough is formed (never over-mix your scones, they'll be tough)

Turn dough out onto a floured surface and dust with a little more flour.
push out (with your hands, not a rolling pin) the dough to form a rectangle shape. 
Cut into 12 equal sized pieces.
Arrange on lined baking trays and bake at 220 centigrade for 10-12 mins until golden brown.

Remove and cool wrapped in a clean tea towel to keep fresh.

Go nuts!

You could add cheese for cheese scones, or dates, or sultanas.

I served mine with butter and some home-made kiwifruit jam from the local farmers market!
These freeze well - keep in a plastic container, just refresh in the microwave for 20 seconds.

Happy Baking all
