Easy 4 Ingredient Scones…


2 cups self raising flour

¼ cup caster sugar

½ cup thickened cream

½ cup Kirks lemonade

2 tbsp milk for glazing

Jam and whipped cream to serve



Preheat the oven to hot, 220°C.

In a large bowl place flour, sugar and a pinch of salt. Add cream and lemonade and mix with a cutlery knife to bring together, do not over mix. Your dough should be slightly sticky. Turn mixture onto a lightly floured workbench and lightly kneed until combined. Press the dough out with your hands to a 2cm thickness. Cut out scones with a 6cm round cutter. Place on baking tray lined with baking paper and brush the tops with milk. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned.

Serve with jam and cream 🙂

  1. I first saw a similar recipe last year with lemonade as well, and at first thought it sounded weird. But then if you think about it, it does make sense. Still haven’t tried it yet, but from your photos, they look 😋

      1. I think that the gas in the lemonade gives a lift to the scone mixture, a bit like what baking soda does to cakes?


  2. Well, that is an old recipe from years gone by, and a popular one in New Zealand. My Nana loved it when my husband baked them for her when she visited us! Nothing beats a scone and a cuppa, well maybe 🙂


  3. I wonder how they compare with other methods. Would a can of lemonade have the same sugar content as the suggested amount of sugar? I have also seen a can of beer added to scone recipes for the same purpose.


      1. I pushed the post and at the end of it, it went on with your next post about the lovely scones. Will have another go.
