Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 cups (525g) self-raising flour
  • 1 cup (250ml) lemonade
  • 3/4 cup (185ml) buttermilk
  • Jam, to serve

Method

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 220°C and grease a 23cm (base measurement) square cake pan. Place the flour in a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Add the lemonade and buttermilk, then use a flat-bladed knife to stir until a soft, sticky dough forms.

STEP 2

Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead until just smooth. Press into a 3cm-thick disc. Use a lightly floured 6cm round cutter to cut 16 discs from the dough, re-shaping the dough if necessary. Arrange the scones, side-by-side, in the prepared pan.

STEP 3

Bake for 20 mins or until light golden and scones sound hollow when tapped. Cool slightly.

STEP 4

Serve scones with jam.
