You could add sultanas for a sweet fruity taste.

  • I’ve made these before. Easy and taste great.


  • I love scones but mine always turn out hard. I am going to try this recipe.


  • My Grandmother used to make scones all the time and they were so light and fluffy. I’m going to have to try this recipe and see how they compare to hers


  • Scones can be so easy !
    I make ours with Gf flour, coconut yogurt, diary free butter, maple or coconut palm syrup instead of sugar and instead of sultana’s – fresh blue berries


  • Wow! So simple and easy!


  • I’ve heard of this- replaces the need for self raising or bi-carb.


  • Who knew lemonade could be so good to make scones


  • My kids love this with chocolate chips.


  • I tried something similar and mine turn out like dough what am I doing wrong


  • Wow, they sound interesting. My scones are made totally differently to that.


  • What a lovely little recipe, thanks.


  • I’ve tried these but mine just taste like normal scones still.


  • I like the name and they look nice.


  • The golden colour of these scones is the best.


  • I never make scones because it makes so many – can you freeze them?
