Lemonade (Sprite) Scones

I originally saw this recipe for Lemonade Scones on Cindy’s blog Life in a Recipe, who read about it on Celia’s blog Fig Jam and Lime Cordial.  It took just over 5 months but I finally got around to making them and they are fabulous.  Using only 3 ingredients produced these moreish tea time treats and as everybody knows, the easier and the less ingredients involved to produce a wonderful recipe is just my cup of tea.  I enjoyed one too many with strawberry jam and lightly whipped cream.

Lemonade (Sprite) Scones


3 cups self raising flour
1 cup cream
1 cup lemonade (sprite)


  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C.
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl until just combined.  The mixture will be quite sticky.
  3. Place the dough onto a floured surface.
  4. Dust your hands and the top of the dough with flour and gently shape the dough into a disk and with a floured cutter, cut out the scones, and place them on a lined baking sheet.
  5. Gently reshape the remaining dough and cut out more scones. I made a total of 12 scones.
  6. Alternatively shape the dough into a square and divide into 12 using a floured knife, separate gently and place onto a lined baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

  1. This recipe is absolutely smart! I really like it! BTW, I’ve been away for a while as you saw, not physically, but I had some things to do. Now I’m back! 🙂

  2. These biscuits are still the best! I make them at least every couple of weeks. There are so many great ways to change them up that you never get tired of them. Like Celia I would love to meet the inventor of this recipe and shake their hand!

  3. I know. Aren’t they amazing. I discovered this recipe in the NSW Country Show cookbook – made by a gentleman. I made them – and I haven’t gone back to any other method since. Together with fresh cream and homemade jam or marmalade and it just doesn’t get any better.

    • Hi Mariana, welcome and thanks for stopping by. These truly are the worlds easiest and best scones!
      You have a fabulous blog but sadly I cannot subscribe to RSS feeds – something to do with Apple? If you could add an email subscription option, I would love to subscribe. 🙂
