Here’s a really easy scone recipe, made with a surprise ingredient, 7 UP or Sprite! It’s a classic Australian Scone recipe, one that my wife made for me about 20 years ago. Perfect for breakfast or with a cup of tea.
In Australia, they call this recipe Lemonade Scones. If you’re from the States, it’s not what you think! There is no lemons in this recipe! Australians call all lemon-lime soft drinks like 7 Up or Sprite as Lemonade. It’s not fresh squeezed lemon juice, commonly known as lemonade. This sounds confusing, but it’s not really. Just use 7 UP when making this recipe!
The easy part of that it’s a 3 ingredient scone recipe, how easy it that. Self raising flour is very commonly used in Australia, UK, and even in the southern states of the US. You can make your own self raising flour by adding baking powder and a bit of salt. For each cup of regular flour, add 1½ teaspoons of baking powder and ¼ teaspoon of salt.
