Cooking with Kids: Lemonade Scones

Feb 25, 2012

Using this simple 4 ingredient recipe for scones is the perfect way for your child to whip up afternoon tea for everyone with very little assistance.

Preheat oven to 220° C (430° F)

 Measure out and sift 3 cups of self raising flour. Count them, 1, 2, 3.

 Add 1 cup of cold lemonade

Wow! Look at it fizzing up! 

 Add 1 cup of cream

 Mix to form a soft dough

Knead the dough on a floured surface. A fun tactile experience.

 Knead the dough out to about 2cms thick and cut with a floured cutter

 Place them close together on a baking tray so they help one another to rise

 Brush the tops with beaten egg (or milk). Bake in oven for 10-15 mins

 Serve with your favourite toppings

Delicious. 2 thumbs up!

Some tips:

- Simplify this activity by measuring all the ingredients yourself and allowing your child to pour them in and practice their hand eye coordination. Get them to count the cups of flour with you.

- Extend this activity by letting your child attempt all the steps and processes independently

- Continue to talk with your child about the methods they are using and the easiest ways to do them. Remember that practice makes perfect!

- Include the correct vocabulary for the techniques etc to help extend their vocabulary and understanding

- Use this time to talk about "Sometimes foods" and "Everyday foods"

  1. Stopping by from happy Whimsical Hearts linky. I love the sound of this recipe. Never have used self rising flour though. Hmmm.
    Would love for you to stop by and link up to my Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen weekly linky.
    Have a great day

    1. Thank you. I'll be sure to stop by :) Instead of self raising flour, you could use plain flower and baking soda. Using self raising just means one less ingredient and they turn out really well :) Cheers, Debs

  2. Yumo, love warm scones with jam and cream. A great recipe for little ones. They love getting their hands involved in kneading and cutting out don't they!
