lemonade scones

Apologies for the absence. I had other things in life that I had to deal with… properly.

Anyway, another ‘baked’ thing. I can’t understand why it’s only the baked stuff I post up. Maybe it’s just that they feel a bit less mediocre than the savoury stuff I cook… Lol.

I came across this scone recipe. And guess what? NO BUTTER. I might go as far as saying this might be a scone hack! In case you didn’t know, making scones involve rubbing butter into flour until it resembles a sand-like texture. I hate this part. So this recipe is like God sent.

Anyway, shan’t blabber any longer. The only modification I made to the recipe was add in chocolate chips.. Cos I love chocolate….. It’s one of the rare times I bake during the day. So you would notice a natural light effect in the photos..

lemonade scones (recipe from taste.com.au)


300g (2 cups) self raising flour
55g (1/4 cup) caster sugar
125ml (1/2cup) thick cream
125ml (1/2cup lemonade)
40ml (2tbsp) milk
chocolate chips (as many as you want)


1. Preheat oven to 220ÂșC
2. Mix it all up.
3. Knead a little on a lightly floured surface.
4. Press (Roll) it out till it’s about 2cm thick
5. Cut, in whatever shape you like.
6. Coat lightly with flour.
7. Bake for 10-15 minutes till its nice and brown.
8. EAT :D

Admittedly the dough got a little too sticky for my liking. Had to add a bit more flour than what was recommended. But it turned out well. So I’m happy.


One question: does this taste as good as a typical scone? :)

I love the idea of a scone hack, btw!

don’t tell anyone this, but i have NO idea what a typical scone is supposed to taste like. different places glorify it differently, so to be honest, i’m confused.

but anyway, this one comes out crunchy outside fluffy and light on the inside. my understanding is that a typical scone isnt that fluffy and light as these ones came out to be. like i saw somewhere ‘it just isnt a scone like nanna would make it’. but im not complaining. :D
