Has anyone tried the above, using flour, cream and lemonade. I have bought the ingredients this morning, and as my sister is round Saturday afternoon i thought i would have a go at making some for us to enjoy. Just thought i would ask if any one has tried and if they are tasty. ??

No, I'll let you go first. I have seen this recipe too and considered the ingredients strange! I will be very interested to know the results.

I have used this recipe. Makes light scones and so easy and perfectly acceptable.However, I don’t think they have quite as much flavour as conventional ones.

I had a go but I had to buy the lemonade especially as I don't usually have it in the house. They were all right but I wouldn't have said they were particularly special. Don't let me deter you - I've gone off scones for some reason.

Lemonade scones are very successful for me. This is a previous thread on the subject.

I don't know why the 'three ingredients' descriptor is used as if it's so remarkable. Traditional scones only have four ingredients if you add sugar, three without confused

I did not find them nearly as good as traditional ones made with sour milk.

I wasn’t keen but I’m no baker👩‍🍳 ..... also I’m a bit spoilt because my lovely neighbour makes wonderful scones and brings us a couple across (hot from the oven!) at least twice a week. These just can’t compete. 😉

By the way she doesn’t come in. Just leaves them in the porch and rings the doorbell to let us know they’re there.

I tried these earlier in the year, As has been said - they were okay - but nowhere near as good as normal ones.
I told my children that they had been made with lemonade, and they think it very funny.

One of my Daughters made tgese and tgey were quite nice, she used Self raising flour, whiping cream, and a can of ordinary Lemonade, not the diet version. They were certainly better than the usual shop bought ones anyway!
