Despite the name, the scones don't taste of lemonade. The carbonated drink acts as a raising agent creating a very tender and fluffy scone.
I came across the original recipe on Instagram. Executive Pastry Chef Daniel Texter from The Dorchester shared his lemonade scones which I had to try! My first attempt wasn't very successful but after a couple of tweaks and practice runs, I've finally arrived at what I feel is the perfect lemonade scone ad I hope you enjoy too!
You can make this recipe completely egg free by replacing the egg wash with warm milk instead.
1 lb. self-raising flour, plus extra
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
3 oz. caster sugar
8 fl. oz. double cream
6 fl. oz. lemonade
For the egg wash
1 egg, lightly beaten
