Lemonade Scones

Your mum deserves a treat!
This foolproof lemonade scones recipe will become a family favourite.

Number of servings:

You'll Need

  • 300g self raising flour

  • 60g caster sugar

  • a good pinch of salt

  • 125ml pouring cream

  • 125ml lemonade

  • milk, to brush on the scones

  • whipped cream, to serve

  • strawberry jam, to serve


  1. Preheat oven to 220ºC. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl. Add the caster sugar and salt and mix through.
  3. Make a well in the centre and pour in the cream and lemonade. Mix until the dough just comes together.
  4. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly to combine. Using your fingers, press the dough out to the desired thickness, about 2-3cm.
  5. Dip a 3.5cm cutter (or whatever size you have) into flour and cut out scones. Push the leftover dough together to make more scones.
  6. Arrange the scones on your prepared tray, leaving a few millimetres between each scone. Brush with a little milk and bake for 10-15 minutes or until risen and lightly coloured.
  7. Serve warm with strawberry jam and cream.
