Our super easy lemonade scones recipe is a fantastic recipe that is not only perfect for people who are new to baking. It is also ideal to whip something up in a flash when unexpected guests are arriving at your doorstep.
This scones recipe calls for 3 simple ingredients that many people have most likely in their kitchen cupboards or fridge: a can of lemonade, a bottle of heavy cream, and self-raising (self-rising) flour.
If you don’t have self-raising flour you simple add 1 teaspoon of baking powder to one cup of all-purpose flour.

On top of just using 3 simple ingredients, flour, lemonade, and heavy cream, all you have to measure is the flour – you’ll need 4 cups.
Put all the ingredients in a large bowl, mix with a knife until it all comes together and you are almost done.
Tip the dough onto a floured board and either cut with a knife or a large cookie cutter.
The dough is quite sticky, so use a bit of flour to spread it out. If you watch my video, you’ll know what I am talking about.
