To Transform the Homely Scone

What to do when you've made soup for dinner but are out of bread and short of time? Make scones!
Every 50s housewife know how to make scones - usually sweet with jam and cream - but a scone recipe is adaptable, and can be savoury as well.

If you follow me on instagram you will know I make scones now and then for afternoon tea (seriously its quicker than driving to the store). This is my easy never fail, cheat recipe -

3 cups self raising flour
1 cup lemonade (or other soft drink)
1 cup pouring cream

Mix ingredients together gently, don't knead, and press into a round about 1cm thick. Cut into circles with a floured glass. Place on greased tray, brush with milk, beaten egg or water and bake for about 15 minutes. Serve and enjoy!


  1. One of these days I'll try one of these with "gluten-free flour."

  2. I've never heard of this recipe for making scones before, is that the way you make them in Australia? I love seeing old magazine articles! XxxX

  3. Hi, are you getting my comments? I left a comment on this post, the one about handkerchiefs and I'm sure the one about 1930s slippers. Are you not receiving them? Loving the posts anyway! XxxX
