Lemonade scones

Freshly baked lemonade scones

High Tea is an all time favourite of mine and many couples are now incorporating this into their wedding day with a casual buffet style high tea served immediately after the ceremony. I love this idea, it is fun, classy and most of all involves yummy food 🙂

Scones with jam and cream are (in my humble opinion) absolutely essential to the success of any tea party. I recently tried a new recipe for lemonade scones and was so incredibly happy with the results! The scones rise beautifully, are perfectly sweet and moist and are incredibly simple to bake.

Unusual ingrediants

I use a recipe I got from http://www.taste.com.au

  • 300g (2 cups) self-raising flour, sifted
  • 55g (1/4 cup) caster sugar
  • 125ml (1/2 cup) thick cream
  • 125ml (1/2 cup) lemonade
  • 40ml (2 tbs) milk
  • a pinch of salt

Preheat the oven to 220°C. Lightly grease a baking tray. Place the flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Add the cream and lemonade and mix to form a soft dough.

Baked with love and adorable-ness

Turn out onto a floured workbench and knead lightly. Press the dough with your hands to a thickness of about 2cm. Use a 6cm round cutter to cut out 8 scones, place on baking tray and brush the tops with some milk. Bake for 10-15 minutes until lightly browned. Serve warm with your favourite jam and whipped cream.
