Hey guys, I’m bringing soda scones back! Let’s do High Tea, afternoon tea, morning tea because we need a reason to enjoy these sweet treats. Or don’t we?
If you aren’t familiar with soda scones, well my dear friends, this is possibly the simplest way to make scones from scratch. There is no need to crumble butter with flour for this recipe. I know this may not be an arduous task to some of you, after all instead of the traditional rub-in method, there’s always a food processor to do the job. But sometimes, I just feel like a less fiddly process. Sometimes, if I can get away with just two-step process of pour and mix, I am all good.
Hence, it’s little wonder that the soda scones recipe from the 4-Ingredients Cookbook has been my go-to recipe. I have tweaked the original recipe to satisfy my savoury tooth. To calm my sweet tooth, on the other hand, I have tweaked the recipe again to make what I cheekily called in short form, 3 Cs scones (Cacao, Cola and Cranberries).
On their own, these are not overly sweet scones. After all the only source of sugar comes from the carbonated drink and when you go through the recipe below, it only requires a fairly small amount. Therefore, I feel like there’s more room for sweetness which can come in the form of fruit preserves (to eat with) or icing (for drizzling). As you can see, I chose to adorn my dark cacao scones with a light drizzling of maple icing to finish the look. Enjoy!
