I loooooove scones. I never used to like scones way back in them childhood years, I always thought cake was far superior to scones. I remember staring sadly at the doughy lump in front of me and wondering why the adults loved them so much. AND THEN I WAS GIVEN CREAM AND ALL WAS RIGHT WITH THE WORLD.
As you can prolly tell, I’m really not one for props but oh golly gosh how I love kids tea sets! I scored a set from the land of the allen key aka Ikea and it was too cute for words!
Anywhos ready for the world’s easiest scone recipe? It’s so freaking easy and super fast to whip up and the recipe is from here, takes about 20mins all up and makes about 10-15 scones.
3 cups self-raising flour
1 cup cold lemonade (do NOT use Solo! I tried it once and the scones become super dense)
1 cup thickened cream
Preheat oven to 205C. Sift flour into a large bowl. Combine lemonade and cream in another bowl. Add the lemonade and cream mixture to the sifted flour and gently fold ingredients together using a spatula or dough scraper until JUST combined (don’t over mix the dough as this will make tough scones). The dough should be fairly soft and a bit sticky.
Place dough on a lightly floured bench, form into a round and press out to about 3cm thickness. Cut scones using a floured 4cm diameter cutter.
Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place scones close together on the tray, so they are just touching. Bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until pale golden and cooked through.
If you like your scones to have a soft crust just cover them with a tea towel for a few minutes.
Serve piping hot and with a bowlful of whipped cream and jam!
