I have just had to make scones for the school open day and thought I'd share the recipe that was provided by the school ....

Aunty Maureen's (Infallible) Scone Recipe

5 cups Self Raising flour
1 can lemonade
300ml thickened cream

Sift flour, add lemonade and cream and mix thoroughly. Turm onto floured surface, knead lightly. Pat out to an even thickness, around 3cm. Cut using a round cutter. Bake in HOT oven, 230-250C for 10 minutes, turning trays around 180 degrees halfway through cooking.
Makes 20 - 30 scones.

Fantastic recipe. I'll never rub butter into flour again to make scones. These ones are light, high and tasty.

Ooops, I just realised - in the US, they're called 'biscuits', aren't they?

Hi Simona

A standard can of lemonade is 375ml, and I just used ordinary, sugar-laden lemonade (eg Sprite, 7-UP)

Hi, Swan you are so very right, what indeed is standard, or, for that matter, what is lemonade Are we getting philosophically minded here?!). Where I live, in a small country on the Mediteranian shore, a lemonade is simply lemon with water (or soda water) and sugar. I would have never thought Sprite or 7-up as a lemonade , so thank you Judy for mentionning it for your recipe. I will try it. And though a Middle Eastern country, we also have standard cans of 330ml. Closer to Europe I guess...

Scones are Scones in the US or at least here in the Northwest. For the cream though, thickened? Does that mean in US terms, heavy or do I need to get clotted cream/devon cream?

I have a "made it up myself" recipe that uses, believe it or not, mayonnaise. They also come out light and fluffy and even a little flakey. People do rave.

Don't you love the variety English gives us? Scones and biscuits, sometimes the same thing sometimes different depending on the people talking. And Judy's use of the word "lemonade" got me in trouble once when I was living in Melbourne. My "partner du temps" was feeling "crook" and asked me to go get him lemonade. Well i got lemonade with some difficulty, you know. lemonade in a carton, just lemons water and sugar. He was quite put out by this as he really wanted Cream Soda or something similar. Turns out he used the word "lemonade" as Canadians use "pop" and Americans "soda". So when I saw Judy's scone recipe requiring "lemonade" I immediately began wondering just what she meant. We would never think of 7-Up or Sprite as lemonade when indeed both are lemon based drinks. Fun eh?

thank you Swan for your warm welcome, and shalom to you too and to all our forum friends. I have nothing more to add to the scone subject, though I love eating them , and as I am new in these kinds of forums ( though not very new in this world, I am a "young" grandma), I presume I'll have to open a new forum on one of the subjects you suggested . Jewish food? Israeli food? why not.
I'll do that after Purim, our traditional Mardi Gras. The traditional Purim cookie is a triangular "scone" filled with poppyseed :other "new age" fillings en vogue to day are chocolate, halva, jams or nuts. They are called " Haman's ears" in memory of a bad person named Haman who was not very nice to the jews about 2000 years ago.

------
no more war, more "haman's ears"!!

I still get teased for saying pop instead of soda.

Shalom Simona,

Now that you've mentioned it, you know you're going to have to share the Hamentashen recipe, right?

Purim was always one of my favorite holidays. I loved to dress the children up! The synogogue had "Drag Queen Esther" races.

I wonder if the scones would work with a can of coke and throw in some chocolate chips, or maybe fanta for some orange tasting scones.

I've never read a recipe for scones that includes a carbonated soft drink, but now I'm eager to try it!

There's a wealth of fruit-flavored sodas available here in the Dallas area -- many are imported and aimed at the Latino market. One of my personal favorites is Sidral, a non-alcoholic apple cider flavor. Think I may have to experiment with some of that and bits of dried apple and nuts in a scone recipe.
