With lemonade, they're the best!!!

I got my recipe from taste.com, if you google lemonade scones, it will come up.

I also put a bit of icing sugar in my cream to sweeten it, yummmmmmm! Very Happy

Hardly any - mix only until all the ingredients are combined and then plop the mix onto the tray for cooking.

I really miss my oven Crying or Very Sad

Hippypippa - you've accidentally made drop scones Laughing Cool

Troppo. Loco. Round the twist.
Pre heat oven to hot.
2 cups S/R Flour
1 tblsp of butter/marg
Pinch of salt
3/4 cup milk.

Sift flour and salt in bowl rub in butter with fingers/
Add milk mixing with a metal knife.
Once coming together, turn out onto floured bench.
Work around lightly on board.
Push dough out and then cut with floured glass.

Cook 10-12 mins.

Cream - sweet

add splash of vanilla essence.
Castor sugar.
Beat.

A nice fruit jam.

Eat and enjoy.

Oh it is an insult to the chef to cut your scones open, they should break open beautifully if successful. lol lol



I can't spell for ****
So if spell check don't pick it up refer to above.

Step away from the computer,
The trick is to not put them too close together on the tray, then they will rise better.


I can't...I have horseriding

They are delish! I had a major scone addiction there for a while Embarassed
Just mix so the ingredients are combined, I put some flour on the bench & kneed for maybe 30 or so seconds.
I just use an upside down cup/glass to cut them out! Makes them nice & round!

I use the 3 rule.

3 SR flour
300 mls of cream
300 mls of lemonade

Mix till combined, then into a big ball. Throw it on the counter and push it down till it's about ummmmm 1 inch flat?? Then cut them out with a glass dipped in flour, and put them close'ish together on a tray and cook them till they are cooked (I don't know how long, I can usually tell by looking!)

My scones are always delicious, and take about 4 minutes to prepare.

The trick with scones is DO NOT overwork the mixture!

I find that if you add a little extra milk they come up lighter and I always take them off the tray and wrap them in a tea towel to cool.
