Super Easy Scones

Rated as 3.45 out of 5 Stars

"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. "

  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.

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 lar...

I followed recipe. I used 7up as per one reviewer and these scones...word used very loosely...were awful. They were bland, flat and very tasteless. Don't waste your time.

I have made these scones several times , the only thing I did was used soda water rather then lemonade as personally I found it very sweet. If you like sweet then you will get plenty from the c...

This recipe is a flop! The dough was too slack- I had to add an additional cup of flour to make it the right consistency. It needed sugar in the recipe as well. I made these to take to a brunc...

Ugh! These didn't cook properly in the middle, were too flat and burned on the top !
