Easy sweet scones

    25 min

    These are light fluffy melt-in-your-mouth scones. The fizzy lemonade gives them a lift. A great beginner recipe that easy for children to make, too. Serve warm with jam and clotted or whipped cream.

    Used different ingredients. I added a handful of currants but you could add any dried fruit or bluberries!  -  28 Aug 2008


    Used different ingredients. I cut dark chocolate bar into chunks and mixed that into the dough.  -  29 Aug 2008


    I had previously made these scones using a similar recipe, so was doubtful with the flour amount ingredient (900g or 2lb) as stated in this recipe. I decided to try this recipe, with the stated flour amount ingredient, and found I needed to add more milk, as it was far too dry to mix, without more liquid added. Quite frankly, I wouldnt recommend anybody to use this recipe, not using 900g anyway. I previously used three cups of flour, with the lemonade and the cream added, and they were delicious, so dont use the 900g as stated in this recipe, its far too much flour.  -  18 Apr 2010
