Lemonade Scones

Lemonade Scones - a real treat and here is the recipie as tried by our Guides

Ingredients

325g self-raising flour,

170ml cold lemonade

170ml double cream

Method

Prep:8min › Cook:12min › Ready in:20min

Preheat oven to 220 C / Gas 7. Line a baking tray with baking parchment, or sprinkle a bit of flour on the tray to stop sticking (we used margerine)

Sift flour into a large bowl. Combine lemonade and cream in a bowl. Add the lemonade and cream mixture to the sifted flour and gently fold ingredients together until just combined (don't over mix the dough as this will make tough scones). The dough should be fairly soft and a bit sticky.

Make rounds of scones and place each one in a jam tart tin section. Bake for about 12-15 minutes, until pale golden and cooked through.

 

 
* Warning when taking the scones out of the microwave please wear oven gloves as a mug can be incredibly hot.

 

Homemade Butter

 

If you want to make your own butter, put 150mls of double cream in a jar and shake vigorously for 5-10mins, pour the Whey out, and hey presto homemade butter.
