Lemonade Scones | 5 Ingredients | Recipe

Served warm or cold, these delicious homemade scones are perfect for a morning snack or afternoon tea, as an after school treat, to take to the park in a picnic basket or as part of a party menu.

I’ve served these delights many times and there’s never any left over!  Loved equally by both adults and children, this recipe is super easy to follow and simple enough for the kids to join in and help.


  • 3 cups self raising flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup lemonade
  • 1 cup thickened cream
  • 1 tablespoon milk


  1. preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius fan forced oven
  2. combine flour & salt in a bowl; make a well in the centre
  3. alternatively add small amounts of lemonade & cream, mixing in between (don’t over mix)
  4. knead on a floured surface, then flatten
  5. cut out shapes of your choice – round, heart, flower etc.
  6. place scones on a baking tray & brush tops with milk
  7. bake for 15 minutes

When done, place a fresh tea towel in a clean bowl and place scones inside, then cover over to keep warm.

To serve, top with your favourite jam and a dollop of whipped cream.  YUM!
