3 ingredient Scones

What better excuse to have an indulgent morning or afternoon tea than tomorrow’s Royal Wedding? Not that I am usually interested in the British Royal family, but it is a good opportunity to share food with friends! These scones will make a great addition to any gathering.

And a great thing is that these scones really couldn’t be simpler – just 3 ingredients, (well, 5 if you count the jam and whipped cream that are the perfect accompaniments!), and they only take minutes to make.

Ingredients – makes approx 16 scones:

  • 2 and a half cups self raising flour
  • 150ml/5 fl oz thickened (heavy) cream
  • 185ml/6fl oz diet lemon & lime soda (or you could use diet lemonade)
  • fruit jam (jelly) and whipped cream, to serve


  • Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan forced/430F.
  • Put the flour into a large bowl and make a well in the centre.
  • Mix the cream and the soda in a jug.
  • Pour the cream & soda into the bowl with the flour, then mix well using a flat bladed knife until a soft dough forms.
  • Knead the dough very slightly whilst it is still in the bowl – but don’t handle too much or the scones will be tough.
  • Turn out onto a floured surface and then roll the dough out until it is 1.5cm/0.5in thick.
  • Use a 6cm/2.5in round cutter (or a drinking glass) to cut out the scones.
  • Place the scones on a non-stick baking tray that has been sprayed with a little cooking spray. Tip: place the scones right next to each other as this helps them rise.

  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Serve with your favourite jam and some whipped cream – enjoy!
