The secret to light fluffy scones is to work the dough as little as possible
For a delightful afternoon tea, serve up some home made scones and fill your house with the smell of fresh baking.
Scones should be enjoyed straight from your oven, with only the briefest of pauses to add fresh, creamy butter and a dollop of jam. And, if you’re indulgent, some clotted cream.
The best scones are made with lemonade.
My mother used lemonade in her scones and I still find it the easiest way to get my scones really light and fluffy. Something in the bubbles?
