I've jumped on the International Incident Party bandwagon started up by Penny from Jeroxie, Anh from A Food Lover's Journey and Cherrie of Sweet Cherrie Pie.
I decided to keep things simple and learn my mother's never fail recipe for lemonade scones. After a disastrous scone attempt 2 years ago with Miss A, I don't believe I've tried making them again. Mainly because there are 50,000 other things I've wanted to try instead. So the scone party was a perfect excuse to learn from my favourite cook, mother dearest.
There are only 3 ingredients you need to make amazing scones. We added dehydrated blueberries to most of the mix after making a few plain ones. They add nice pockets of flavour and juiciness you don't get with plain scones.
The results? Amazing fluffy scones that never fail! The lemonade helps to make them light, and the cream is a great substitute for butter and milk. Minimal ingredients make them perfect to make when you have last minute guest coming over too.
4 cups self-raising flour, sifted
1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
2. Sift flour into a large bowl, add cream and lemonade.
3. Mix together with 2 knives, until combined.
4. Pat onto a well floured board, cut with floured scone cutter and place on baking tray.
5. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
6. Cool on trays, serve with jam and lashing of whipped cream.
