3-Ingredient Lemon Scones

4.2
(5)

These scones are so quick and simple. They only have three ingredients and produce deliciously light scones. The bubbles in the lemon soda make them rise. There is no need to rub butter as in the traditional scone recipe. Serve hot with whipped cream and berry jam.

Ingredients

  • cooking spray

  • 3 cups self-rising flour

  • 1 cup lemon-flavored soda

  • 1 cup heavy cream

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet with cooking spray; lightly dust with flour.

  2. Sift self-rising flour into a large bowl. Combine lemon soda and cream and pour over the flour. Mix until dough is just combined. Turn dough out onto the prepared baking sheet. Flour your hands and gently pat dough into a large rectangle. Do not overwork the dough. Cut into triangles or squares.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden, 10 to 12 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

The lemon soda adds a lot of air to the mixture. If you handle the dough too much, that airiness will be lost and the scones won't rise well.

To make a lower-calorie version, substitute plain soda water for the lemon-flavored one.
