Ingredients

    4 cups self-raising flour
    300ml cream (1 small bottle of cream)
    ¼ cup Chelsea White Sugar
    300ml lemonade 
    ½ tsp salt

Method

    Preheat oven to 220°C. Cover an oven tray with a sheet of baking paper or spray well with non stick baking spray.

    Mix all ingredients in a bowl to form a smooth dough (the mixture is quite sloppy). Tip out onto a floured bench and form into a 'round'. Carefully lift and place onto baking tray (a dough scraper helps) and cut into wedges (leave with sides touching - scones will pull apart after baking). Alternatively, use a cookie cutter or knife to cut into rounds or squares.  

    Bake for about 15 - 20 minutes until starting to colour pale golden. Check they are cooked through and cool on a wire rack, covered with a clean tea towel (this keeps the scones lovely and soft).

    Cut in half and spread with butter, jam and whipped cream whilst still warm.

    SCONE VARIATIONS:
    · Add 1 cup of dried fruit to the mixture e.g. chopped dates, sultanas, raisins or dried cranberries.
    · Add 1 cup of chocolate chips to the mixture.
    · To make savoury scones, replace the lemonade with soda water and any of these optional extras:-
    · 1 large onion, finely chopped
    · 1 cup grated tasty cheese
    · 6 rashers lean rindless bacon, chopped
    · 3 tablespoons chopped parsley or fresh herbs
    · To make a cinnamon pinwheel scone, mix 2 teaspoons cinnamon with 3/4 cup caster sugar. Lay the dough mixture out flat on a well floured bench. Pat out to be a rectangle approximately 30 x 20 cm. Sprinkle the cinnamon mixture over the surface. Roll up from the long side into a sausage shape then cut into slices. Lay the slices on a prepared tray so they just touch each other, cook and cool as above. The lovely sticky cinnamon filling can be quite hot so remember to cool them down before biting in.

It was delicious

Nice and easy to make and really good

Lemonade Scone's are the best, they never fail

Made these scones yesterday with the girls during the school holidays. I was apprehensive about the wet mixture but remembered I use a wet mixture when making bread. Awesome recipe quick and easy to make. Very light, soft and delicious.

It was a great recipe for things to do on a rainy day and when you're bored. Taste delicious!

I had to use 350ml Lemonade to 4 cups of flour but apart from that, fantastic recipe.

I've made this recipe for some time and haven't ever used extra sugar - the lemonade is sweet enough. They are delicious!

Works great with other fizzy sugar drinks too. Try using Ginger Ale/Beer, Orange/Fanta, etc instead of Lemonade but consider the end colour when choosing the drink. e.g. Will work with coke but the scone colour might not be to your liking.

It's so fluffy and soft to the touch

For 40 years my scones were like bricks, now I'm making them a couple of times a week some plain some savory or sweet, thank you.

These come out perfect every time. Highly recommended!! We make these every week nearly - great with dates added in too.

I love baking I love writing recipes out

Jo Seagar bought these to my attention years ago and they are so easy and awesome. Recipes should always be shared.

I just made these scones, they are so light and airy. They are so good!

Love this recipe, I've just made these scones, perfect taste great and sooo nice.

I have never been able to make scones before, but this recipe is
awesome and so quick and easy.

I always thought that a good scone required meticulously rubbing the butter into the flour and kneading the dough. And then I made these...

Beautiful moist scones. Going to try the savoury scones next time

These scones were so easy to make and cooked beautifully. When I felt them they seemed a bit heavy but when eating them they were so light and delicious. Great recipe.

Great recipient thanks

This recepie didn't work for us scones looked like blobs of dough and didn't brown well

Best scone recipe yet I have made. Just to let you know that I used zero lemonade and they turned out just fine!!

Fool proof recipe! Just like Nana makes.

Simple as and delicious.

Best ever scones

OI only use 300ml of lemonade that amount and the recipe is fine - not too wet. (I believe cans used to be only 300ml). Otherwise use 5 - 6 cups flour. This recipe used to be a favourite at gala days for the tea room stall and has been around for many years. It's light, tasty and very easy to make.
