3 cups (450g) plain flour plus extra for dusting.
4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (250ml) Double/single cream
1 cup (250ml) Lemonade
Butter for greasing
2-3 tablespoons milk
2-3 tablespoons sugar (OPTIONAL)
1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees celicious. Grease a baking tray with butter and set aside.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
Make a well in the centre, then add the cream and lemonade. Mix to form a soft dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, knead lightly until smooth.
3. Pat or roll dough out to 1 inch thick. Cut scones with a large/medium cutter or water glass, flouring the cutter in between each scone.
4. Arrange the scones so they sit up against one another for (support as they rise). Brush the tops with milk and bake for about 15 minutes, or until they are partially golden.
NB:-TWEAK THE RECIPE TO SUIT YOUR OWN PREFERENCE. YOU CAN ADD SUGAR IF YOU HAVE A SWEET-TOOTH OR USE SELF RAISING FLOUR INSTEAD OF PLAIN AND ADD 1 TEASPOON BAKING POWDER FOR A FLUFFIER RESULT. SPRITE WILL DO TOO.
