This very simple scone recipe has just three ingredients! It's great for beginners and those who don't feel like fiddling with more complex scone recipes. This type of scone recipe is quite common in Australia. Serve warm with the topping of your choice. In my family, we love scones with cream and fresh strawberries, but they're great with butter and jam, or anything else you want to try.

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Place the flour in a mixing bowl with a hollow in the middle; add the cream and lemonade; mix until combined into a very sticky dough. Pour the mixture onto a floured surface; roll with a floured rolling pin until the mixture is approximately 1 inch thick. You may need to sprinkle extra flour on top, given the stickiness of the mixture. Cut into rounds and place on a floured baking sheet with each round a few centimeters apart.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the tops of the scones are lightly browned and sound slightly hollow if you tap them, about 15 minutes.

Having lived overseas, I noticed something that might trip up most Americans with this recipe; 'lemonade' is known as Sprite or 7up in the states (or anything similar). The carbon dioxide helps the scones to raise.

I actually quite liked these scones. I followed the recipe to the letter. The dough was quite soft and sticky, but using the extra flour for dusting solved the problem. The final scones were large, suitably fluffy and delicious served hot with strawberries and fresh cream. They were not very sweet at all - the sugar in the lemonade was just enough for them to not taste savoury... But that is the way British scones are meant to taste. A lot of the flavour is meant to come from the filling you add, rather than the actual scone being sweet. I will definitely make this recipe again.

I'm not surprised that people had problems with this recipe. I'm an Aussie, and I can tell you that you need 4 cups of Self Raising flour to 1 cup each of cream and lemonade. A pinch of salt helps bring out the flavour, also make the scones smaller so they cook through properly. Then the recipe will earn more stars.
