RECIPE: Three-ingredient scones
Moist and fluffy scones, made with only three ingredients.
Serve warm with Jam and Cream
Serves: Makes 10
3 cups self-raising flour
1 cup thickened cream (not whipped)
1 cup cold lemonade
Preheat oven to 200C.
Combine the flour, cream and lemonade in a bowl and mix until just combined. Do not over mix. The dough should be soft and fairly sticky.
Turn out onto a floured surface, and gently pat down to 2.5cm/1.2 inch thickness.
Use a 6cm/2.5" round cutter to cut scones. Flour the cutter in between so the dough doesn't stick
Optional - brush the tops lightly with milk. This makes the tops nice and golden, and helps smooth the top too.
Place on a lined or greased tray, slightly touching each and bake for 12 to 15 minutes until golden on top.
Place on rack to cool. Place tea towel over them to stop the tops from getting crusty.
Serve with jam and whipped cream or butter.
These freeze well, for up to three months.
