Lemonade adds a touch of zingy sweetness to this non-traditional scone recipe, which uses cream instead of butter and is super quick to make

Ingredients (makes 12 scones)

  • 1 cup lemonade (not flat)
  • 1 cup cream
  • 3 cups self-raising flour


  1. Preheat oven to very hot 220°C
  2. Mix flour,, cream and lemonade. Mixture will be soft
  3. Turn onto a lightly floured board. Pat down, do not roll. Use a round cookie cutter to cut scones
  4. Brush tops with milk or a lightly beaten egg
  5. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until tops are golden


When you turn the mixture out onto the kitchen bench, dust it again with more flour so it isn’t too sticky to cut up. This will allow you to get a lovely ‘scone’ shape. I prefer using egg to brush pastries as this makes them more golden after cooking

  • I have made a similar recipe.


  • Lemonade always helps with making fluffy and light scones.


  • These look yummy! Thanks for sharing.


  • Heard of the lemonade in scones trick before but never tried it. Thanks.


  • Thanks for the recipe we are going to do these tomorrow!

  • Oh yum, my mum used to make these!


  • These look YUM! Simple and easy a winner.


  • yum. these look quick and easy to make


  • I have seen this recipe many times, but I am yet to try it. Think it might be time to give it a go.


  • I love both this and the traditional recipes but this is a great one for when you go away


  • Nice and easy to make them.


  • I have a friend who makes lemonade scones vs our non-lemonade scones and I’ve always found it a little funny. But, they taste delicious and they don’t fizz in my mouth!!!


  • I would like to say thank you for posting this recipe. I was given the recipe years ago but couldn’t find it. I was hoping it would be here, and today, I found it. Thank you so much. I am so grateful.

    When you put your scones on the tray, do you bunch them up close together or have them separate. I was told many years ago from a friend that she puts one in the centre, then goes around and puts them right up close together. I would be really interested how you do it sarah.

    thank you again.

  • Always a great recipe to teach first time cooks! I remember being a kid at a Tupperware party and they made these and I feel in love with them over the normal scone recipe. Thanks for sharing!
