Successful Scones


Who would have known that these three little ingredients were the key to my scone making success!

I have never been able to make a successful batch of scones.  I have treid a few times and they always turn out horrible and don't rise properly.  I was telling my friend Mahnee the other day and she told me to try out this recipe and lo and behold she was right.

All it takes is 3 cups of self raising flour, 1 cup of thickened cream and 1 cup of lemonade.  Mix your cream into the flour and then mix in the lemonade.  My mix was quite wet so I added a little more flour.  Then turn out onto a floured surface and pat or roll to 4cm thickness.  Bake at 190* for 12 minutes or until golden and your all done.

And that my friends is the first item crossed off my 101 in 1001 days list and only 4 days in from the new start date.  That's pretty good progress I think!
