Lemonade Scones

These are just so ridiculously awesome and sooo quick and easy!! I made them tonight and they were lovely.

Sorry no photos this time... I'll take one next time I make them.

I usually make traditional scones, but never again. I am a true convert! I can't believe it has taken me this long to try making lemonade scones.

They rose to great heights and were amazingly light and fluffy and tasted delicious.

We had them after our roast dinner tonight, with strawberry jam and freshly whipped cream (to which I added a little vanilla and icing sugar). Needless to say, we are all rather full!

I used this recipe:

Lemonade Scones

Makes 12-14 scones

325g (2 cups and 2 tbs) SR Flour
2/3 cup cold lemonade
2/3 cup cream

Preheat oven to 225 degrees Celcius (205 degrees if fan forced)

Line baking tray with baking paper

Sift flour into a large bowl

Add lemonade and cream

Very gently fold ingredients together until just combined (do NOT overmix or scones will be tough)! Dough should be fairly soft and sticky

Place dough on a lightly floured bench, gently shape into a round and press to about 3.5 cm height

Cut scones with a floured 5cm diameter cutter

Form offcuts into another round and cut more scones

Place scones close together on the tray so they are just touching (this helps them to rise well)

Bake for 12-15 minutes until light golden and cooked through

If you like scones with a soft crust (I don't but some people do), cover with a teatowel for 1 min after removing from oven

Serve hot with jam and whipped cream


  1. These sound great! Just to check, is it sparkling lemonade or something more akin to a citron presse that you used?

  2. Oooh gotta try these! My recent scone making efforts are decidedly pedestrian...


Hi! Thanks for leaving me a comment... I love to hear from people :-)
