Strawberry Scones

I have been on a bit of a scone binge the last few days and just for research purposes made a batch with fresh strawberries – what resulted was a lovely light strawberry flavoured scone – perfect and just for good measure, I served them with strawberry jam and a healthy helping of whipped cream oh and not to forget the ever important cup of tea.  It was a very happy afternoon.

Strawberry Scones

Ingredients

3 cups self raising flour
½ cup slithered fresh strawberries
1 cup cream
1 cup lemondade (sprite)

Method

  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.
