Is it this (GN) recipe?

Love scones. Best ones I ever made were lemon and cranberry with plain yogurt. Delicious.

I saw that recipe but couldn't imagine scones made with lemonade. Might give it a go, I think the recipe is still among my e-mails.

Similar Lisagran but sure it's double cream..will post a.m

Scone recipe with lemonade sounds interesting, but I wonder what kind of lemonade? Something like 7up or Sprite? Or the cloudy type? Maybe it doesn’t matter.

Lisagran Sat 16-Mar-19 21:58:57

In the GH recipe Farmor15, it says cloudy or clear lemonade. I made them a while ago with clear - they’re very light and fresh

Could I make them into cheese scones? My DH is currently (sorry couldn’t resist) addicted to them and he isn’t eating too well atm ?

I look forward to trying the scones, thank you.

My neighbour told me of a lemonade recipe she uses when mass catering at a conference she volunteers for;
Frozen berries or can of pie filling
Packet of dry sponge cake mix
Cheap sugar free lemonade
Layer fruit in greased dish, cover with dry sponge mix, sprinkle with the lemonade until all wetted (it will fizz up).
Bake at 180C for about 30 minutes

It is delicious!

How much is in a can of lemonade? Here in Germany lemonade is sold in returnable bottles.

Intrigued, I just looked this up and will try them today! Thanks, farview!

Thanks for this - I'll definitely be trying these. Also I'm going to try your neighbour's recipe, shysal, which looks interesting! Thanks smile. It's never occurred to me to use lemonade in cooking - I'm intrigued now and will be Googling for other ideas wink

Well off I went to consult Mr Google. I thought I'd search for "Cooking with lemonade". Now, you know how, as you type in the search field, he tries to guess what you're looking for and make suggestions?

Well, hmm...... the first suggestion Mr Google made was, wait for it..... "Cooking with poo" shock

No, I didn't click on it. I really, really do not want to know hmmgrin
