Made this for sunday brunch this weekend and everyone loved them. Made as directed but I did add another tblsp. lemon juice. You cant get much easier than this recipe! Thank you
I have just made this recipe and it was a disaster! All of my measurements were accurate and I ended up with a soup-like consistency. I had to add several more cups of flour to get something like the dough that the recipe describes. The extra flour and stirring resulted in a tough and tasteless dough. I baked it anyway, just to follow through. The "scones" were so awful I threw the whole thing out! What a waste of my time and ingredients!
These were delightful! I like one reviewers idea of lemon icing and may try that next time. I liked the mildness of the lemon, but more lemon would be good too. I served these with steak and eggs for dinner. Very easy to make.
We loved this, I did add some lemon icing on top. It was easy and fast with a great texture. My husband is on his 3rd one!
I have just ploughed my way through two pieces of this - it is beautiful! So simple to make and so tasty! When I was making it I was concerned there wouldn't be enough fat, but actually it was spot on and the texture was wonderful - perfect crumbliness! My only comment would be that the lemon flavour is VERY subtle. Next time I might try adding some lemon zest or a little more lemon juice to try and up the flavour, but even as it was it was SO good. I ate it warm with some sweet butter. Mmmmmmmm! Being a stereotypical Brit I found it a bit odd than the scones weren't round, but they'll still go great in a cream tea with butter, jam, clotted cream and a good old British cuppa! :o) A definite keeper - thanks Sam!
