CWA Lemonade Scones
By Sarah Wolter
We're reminiscing about good old fashioned homemade baking! YUM!
How good was it as kids when your mum, or dad, or even grandma would get out the mixing bowls and whip up some delicious home baked treats.
In Australia the famously popular CWA (Country Women’s Association) recipe for Lemonade scones is stuff legendary afternoon bakes are made of.
These are so easy to make and with some jam and cream they make a decadent, tasty comfort food just perfect for chilly winter days.
As a tip you can add some sultanas if you want to be good, or chocolate chips if you want to be naughty!

We've dropped the recipe for the CWA Lemonade Scones below.
Lemonade Scones CWA Ingredients
1 cup Pure Cream
1 cup Lemonade
3 cups Self Raising Flour
Pinch of Salt
Flour, for dusting
Jam and Cream to serve
Preheat the oven to 180 C (fan-forced) or 200 C (conventional).
Sift the flour into a large bowl. Add the cream and then the lemonade.
Quickly (but gently!) combine the ingredients into a dough to trap as many bubbles as possible into the mixture.
Turn the dough onto a floured surface and, once again gently, roll it out to a thickness of about 2cm.
Cut your scones out with a cutter.
Arrange evenly on a tray and bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden.
Serve with jam and thickened cream.
