This is my best ‘whip it up’ recipe that always delights guests and their children.
They are super quick to make and have very few ingredients. Love that.
I got this recipe from my mum when I first left home.
I guess she was worried I’d just eat McDonalds every day. hahaha
HERE IS MY BASIC (and I mean basic)
BASIC SCONE RECIPE
3 cups of self-raising flour
1 cup Sprite (not flat)
1 cup cream
(Tablespoon of milk for browning – optional)
Throw it all together and mix before lightly kneading on a floured surface.
You might need 1/2 cup of extra flour when kneading the dough together.
Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough and use a glass to cut into scone size.
My scones were about 1. 5cm in thickness.
Brush with some milk.
You can use an egg wash (egg and milk), however, my little girl can’t eat egg so I used milk.
Place in a hot oven 200c for about 15-20 minutes or cook until golden brown.
Serve with a slab of butter, jam and cream or enjoy them as they are.
I hope you enjoy this recipe.
Please leave me a comment as I love hearing from you!

Just tries making the scones with the can of sprite recipe. I was really looking forward to making it but despite following the recipe, the mixture was too gooey and sticky to knead 🙁 What a shame.
Hi Wendy! I’m terribly sorry that you found the mixture too wet. I usually sprinkle some flour onto a board and the extra flour seems to help the dough come together. I actually made these two days ago and it seemed fine. Hope you have the patients to give it another go. Kindest regards. Kate
