FAQ

Can you use sugar free lemonade in scones?

Yes, you can use sugar-free lemonade in scones.
However, keep in mind that the taste and texture may be slightly different than if you were to use regular lemonade.
The result will not end up tasting quite as sweet as using full sugar, but still works well.

Can you freeze lemonade scones?

Yes, you can freeze your cooked scones for up to three months.
Defrost and re-heat in the microwave in a brown paper bag.

Why did my lemonade scones not rise?

There are a few reasons why your lemonade scones may not have risen properly.
One common issue is using expired or old self-raising flour.
Another possibility is overworking the dough, which can cause the scones to become dense and not rise properly.
Make sure to handle the dough gently and avoid overmixing.
Finally, check that your oven is at the correct temperature and that you are baking the scones for the recommended amount of time.

Why are my lemonade scones crumbly?

There are a few reasons why your scones may be crumbly.
One is that you may have overworked the dough, causing the gluten to develop too much.
Another is that you may have added too much flour, or not enough liquid.
Make sure to follow the recipe closely and handle the dough gently to avoid overworking it.

How long do lemonade scones keep?

Lemonade scones can last for up to 2-3 days if stored in an airtight container at room temperature.
However, they are best eaten fresh on the day they are made.
