This recipe was given to my by my MIL's best friend, who was about 90 at the time. I took my little MIL over to visit her old friend and she served these scones up, I was so impressed with how light and fluffy these were I asked for the recipe and in her infinite kindness she passed it on to me.
REALLY easy and REALLY nice. My new favourite scone recipe! As for the claims it's a rip off, yes, it's identical, but I like the idea that this one comes from the author's MIL's friend (who is to say who had it first, really?). In either case, it's a keeper of a recipe. Thanks for sharing! - 07 Apr 2011
Used different ingredients. I found the lemonade a little sweet so I replaced it with an equivalent amount of soda water - came out great! - 27 Dec 2009
These definitely are a light and fluffy scone. So easy and quick to make as there is no rubbing the butter into the flour. I have made lemonade and cream scones before and was impressed with them so searched for a recipe and this is what I found. - 18 Mar 2011
