A super-quick and simple shortcut for scones that are deliciously light and fluffy. Just chuck everything into a bowl, mix, and bake - and don't forget a big dollop of jam and cream.


  • 700g of self-raising flour

  • 1 can of lemonade (330ml)

  • 300ml of whipping cream


1. Mix the self-raising flour, lemonade and cream in a large bowl until it makes a fluffy dough

2. Tip the dough onto a floured board and flatten it out so it's around one inch thick

3. Using an upside-down mug - or an actual scone cutter - cut even circles out of the dough, rolling up the excess and repeating this step until there's none left

4. Place the scones on a lined baking tray and bake in a preheated oven at 220°C for 10-12 minutes, until cooked through and golden brown on top

5. Remove from the oven and leave to cool before smothering in jam and clotted cream
