From Lemonade to Beer Scones

Dboz Lyfe


I had a hankering for Lemonade scones but had no cream or can of lemonade! But of course we had beer and Carbonara pasta sauce so this recipe is the result!

The Lemonade Scones recipe also calls for self-raising flour but since I didnt have that either, I added baking powder and salt.

1 cup plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Sift all together.

Use a beer you like, I used a lager which has a nice lemony flavour. If you prefer to make these with cream then dont be alarmed if the mix is frothy, its meant to be.

    carbonara pasta sauce (or try alfredo, could be nice!)
  • 330 ml
    beer (this was the full amount in the bottle i used)

  • 4 c

How to Make From Lemonade to Beer Scones


  1. Preheat oven to 220C and line a baking sheet with baking paper.

    In a bowl, sift dry ingredients together
  2. In a separate bowl pour in Carbonara sauce or cream.
  3. Pour bottle of beer into carbonara and stir until well incorporated
  4. Make a well in the dry ingredients and gently fill with the beer mixture
  5. Fold everything together until combined then turn out onto a well floured board.
  6. Using well floured hands bring the scone dough together until you get a nice mound shape.

    Dont worry if the mixture feels more sticky than usual, this is just how it is so flour your hands and perservere!
  7. Pat the mound until you have a flattened 1 to 1 1/2 inch disc.
  8. Flour a sharp knife and cut dough into 12 pieces.

    Because the dough is so soft and sticky I always have trouble cutting my pieces. I end up with all sorts of shapes and sizes and I just call them beer nuggets. YOU will be much better at this than I am!
  9. Carefully place pieces onto the baking sheet and cook in a hot oven for 10-12 minutes.

    Serve with lashings of butter or a nice cream cheese topping (can anyone come up with a savoury version of jam and scones?!)
  10. Once you've made these a couple of times, you'll be able to tweak this recipe to your preference. Try adding a pinch or two (or 3!) of cayenne pepper and a cup of grated cheese!
    In this pic I used alfredo sauce and 1 cup strong cheese and sprinkled cheese on top.
