Three Ingredient Scones

Waking up to a plate of freshly baked scones, is my idea of a perfect breakfast. Unfortunately, I have never been able to wake up to such a treat, until now! With just three ingredients, even dear Hubby can whip up a scrumptious plate of scones without any supervision. (Getting him to agree to bake them while I sleep in, is a completely separate challenge, though!)

Three ingredients are all you need to make these beautiful scones: self raising flour, cream anddddd the secret ingredient; a can of lemonade (7-Up or Sprite). If you won't believe me, I swear I won't take offense. But please believe Monique Bowley, a former contestant of The Great Australian Bake Off. I think it is quite safe to say that she knows what it takes to bake a good scone. Here's her video which shows how simple it is to make this decadent afternoon (or perhaps morning?) treat.

To try this super simple recipe, you will need the below ingredients:
  • 4 cups of self-raising flour
  • 300ml of whipping/thickened cream
  • 1 can of lemonade (~370ml)
  • (1/2 teaspoon of salt, completely optional)

Simply pour the trio of ingredients into a bowl - flour, cream followed by the can of lemonade.

Instead of using a wooden spoon, use a knife to mix everything together.

A thing to note when handling the batter, is to use a light touch when mixing the ingredients together. Use a knife, just until the ingredients are combined, then use the tips of your fingers to mix them into a dough-like consistency, making sure not to over knead.

Using a scone cutter or a cup, cut the dough into small pieces. Place them onto a lined baking tray, making sure they are lined close together. Don't worry, it will only go upwards; it will not expand sideways. Bake in a pre-heated oven for 15 minutes at 200degC.

As soon as you take them out of the oven, I guarantee that you won't be able to resist picking one up, splitting it open while still warm, filling it with butter, strawberry jam and a large dollop of cream, and popping it into your mouth. *drool* Definitely my comfort food!

A perfect scone!
