Sunday Baking - soft, tender freshly baked Lemonade Scones - Ridiculously easy recipe


Lemonade Scones

Ingredients:

512g Flour, sifted
4t Baking powder
Pinch salt
300ml double cream
300ml lemonade or soda water

Method:

Sift flour, Baking Powder and salt together several times to aerate.
Make a well in the center and pour on cream and lemonade.
Mix until a soft dough is formed (never over-mix your scones, they'll be tough)

Turn dough out onto a floured surface and dust with a little more flour.
push out (with your hands, not a rolling pin) the dough to form a rectangle shape. 
Cut into 12 equal sized pieces.
Arrange on lined baking trays and bake at 220 centigrade for 10-12 mins until golden brown.

Remove and cool wrapped in a clean tea towel to keep fresh.

Go nuts!

You could add cheese for cheese scones, or dates, or sultanas.

I served mine with butter and some home-made kiwifruit jam from the local farmers market!
These freeze well - keep in a plastic container, just refresh in the microwave for 20 seconds.

Happy Baking all
