- 3 cups of Self Rasing Flour
- 1 cup of Cream
- 1 cup of Lemonade
- Pinch of Salt
With just 3 ingredients you, yes you, can have a delicious batch of scones. Don’t believe me well just get your bowl and ingredients out and success is yours. These scones are light and fluffy and fail proof- meaning any level of cook can get them right. I’m sure most people have memories of scones, whether from your grandmas recipes or even high tea. When ever someone mentions scones, I think of my mum. You ask why? Its not the most obvious that she makes the best scones, actually it’s the opposite. For a women who is a fabulous cook she has never mastered the art of scones- which baffles me. So this post is to hopefully inspire her to give it yet another try.

NOW FOR THE RECIPE:
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
1. Place the flour, cream and a pinch of salt in a bowl and combine well
2. Add the lemonade without over beating, and mix into the batter. If too sticky add more flour.
3. Place dough on a floured surface and roll out to 4cm depth
4. Using a cutter, cut out each scone.
5. Turn the heat of the oven down to 190 degrees and place scones on the middle rack
6. Cook for 12 mins until lightly brown on the top
Best eaten warm from the oven with clotted cream and jam (and of course some tea)
Clotted Cream:Is used across England but is very easy to make. 3 parts Thicken cream, 1 part sour cream, 1 part icing sugar
- When cutting don’t turn the ring instead push straight down- this helps with to give an even top
