Remember the lemonade scones on the Sunlander train from Cairns to Townsville. I’ve found a recipe at taste.com.au that the reviewers seem happy with. Give it a try and see what you think!
- 300g (2 cups) self-raising flour, sifted
- 55g (1/4 cup) caster sugar
- 125ml (1/2 cup) thick cream
- 125ml (1/2 cup) lemonade
- 40ml (2 tbs) milk
Preheat the oven to 220°C. Lightly grease a baking tray.
Place the flour, sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add the cream and lemonade and mix to form a soft dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured workbench and knead lightly until combined. Press the dough with your hands to a thickness of about 2cm. Use a 6cm round cutter to cut out 8 scones, place on baking tray and brush the tops with some milk. Bake for 10-15 minutes until lightly browned. Serve warm with your favourite jam.
