20140702-225133-82293453.jpgI crave ye olde scones on a pretty regular basis and I knew there was an easy recipe for them but my Mum is the kind of person who turns her nose up at the cheat way and prefers the complicated (but better) method. I never really bothered to look up the cheat way and that was a good thing but then my good friend Bonney gave it away. It’s the easiest freaking thing you will ever do and I cannot claim that this is my recipe at ALL but hey, it’s here if you want it. I am sorry in advance for ruining your diets.

What You’ll Need:

20140702-225131-82291724.jpg
3 cups of self-raising flour
1 cup of pouring cream
1 cup of lemonade

Extras:
Another cup of cream
Vanilla essence
Sugar
Jam

Preheat your oven to 180°C. Put the flour into a mixing bowl and make a well in the centre. Pour in the lemonade and the cream.

Mix them together until they’re pretty much combined and then tip it out of the mixing bowl onto a floured surface and knead it for a while until it’s a nice consistency and just generally not too floury. Don’t knead it too much though, you want to keep air in there.

Flatten the dough out a little bit (not too much) and then grab a cup (to use as a cutter) and cut out round circles. Place them on a lined tray really close together – so that the edges are touching. Put them in the oven for about 15 minutes or so. Just keep an eye on them because it can depend on the size that you cut them out at.

While they’re cooking just whip up the cream – add a bit of vanilla essence and sugar to make the cream have a bit of taste.

When they’re done, just serve them with a the jam and cream or whatever else you like scones with! This recipe tastes much better if it’s still warm but they are still pretty good cold! Enjoy!
