The reason I love it is because it is a great standby. If you are anything like me, because you cook from scratch and don't like buying products with packaging, if visitors drop in unexpectedly there is just nothing in the cupboards ready to eat!
So this easy recipe is my standby. I keep lemonade in the back of the cupboard (so the kids can't see it) and every three to six months I throw together some scones in a hurry. There are only three main ingredients in this recipe. Lemonade, cream and self raising flour.
1 cup cream
1 cup lemonade
3 cups self raising flour
pinch of salt
jam and cream to serve
Pre-heat oven to 200c. Lightly flour a baking tray. Place all ingredients in a bowl.
Cut out with a 5cm scone cutter. Lightly dust with flour and bake for 15 - 20 minutes, until the top is brown. Serve with jam and cream.
They couldn't be easier and they are so light and fluffy! So if you know someone is about to drop in..... start to finish takes less than thirty minutes and they're beautiful!
Do you have any 'cheat' recipes?
