Lovely light scones made the Australian way, but using a can of cream soda instead of fizzy lemonade. Cream soda gives a very subtle hint of vanilla. The fizz makes them extra light. Whipping cream is the nearest to Australian pure cream. The fat required is in the cream and the sugar in the can of fizz.
Lovely served warm with butter or filled with whipped cream and strawberry jam. Try one served with fruit and custard for dessert.
If you do not like vanilla, then replace cream soda with a can of lemonade, or 7up®.
Best serves freshly baked. When cool, store in an airtight container.
Absolutely amazing! It shouldn't work but it does - and makes the most beautiful light scones. I thought the cream soda might make them too sweet, but it doesn't. Really quick and easy, will try lemonade ones next. Highly recommend! - 06 Feb 2016
