This easy scone recipe only requires 3 ingredients; self raising flour, cream and lemonade – that’s it! Better still, these scones are so good that you will never make scones the hard way again


  • 3 cups (450g) of self raising flour
  • 1 cup of thickened cream / heavy cream*
  • 1 cup of lemonade (like Sprite)


  1. Preheat oven to 200 °C (400 °F).
  2. Place flour in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add cream and lemonade and mix to combine.
  4. Turn the mixture out onto a well-floured board and knead with extra flour until smooth (mixture is very sticky initially).
  5. Use your hand to flatten the scone dough out to about 2 -3 cm (1 inch) thick and then cut into rounds with floured scone cutter.
  6. Place scones onto a lined baking tray so that they are just touching and then bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
  7. Scones are cooked when they are golden brown and can be easily pulled apart where they are joined.


I have made these scones several times now and have found that they keep very well in the freezer. Once thawed you can pop one in the microwave for a few seconds and it is just like it has been freshly baked!

I also use sugar free lemonade and find that it works just fine.

*Heavy cream or whipping cream is called thickened cream in Australia.
