Strawberry Lemonade Scones

Strawberry Lemonade Scones @createdbydiane Afternoon tea is getting a fun summer update today.


You know I’m typically all about tea but today calls for strawberry lemonade,


a perfect match to these scones fit for royalty. Join me for a tea party!


No matter how hot it is outside, this updated afternoon tea will be just perfect.


Sweet and tangy ice cold strawberry lemonade is definitely on the menu, and, well,


it wouldn’t be afternoon British tea for royalty without delicious scones.


These will be my new go-to scone for entertaining; the flavors are so fresh and delicious.

    hi Diane, thank you for the great recipes on your blog. I love them. In the recipe above, Strawberry scones, there is no eggs listed in the ingredients but you mention to add eggs in the directions! Does it have eggs and if yes how many? Thank you

      Thanks for letting me know, the recipe calls for 2 eggs. I adjusted the recipe. I’m not sure what is going on with the recipe, but the whole recipe went missing a few times and I’ve re written it twice, I hope it stays this time. If you have any trouble let me know and I can email it to you.

    There’s a place we go for coffee sometimes that make the most delicious strawberry scones…they’re my favorite. I definitely need to try making some myself.

    I made some peach scones recently and they were fantastic and guess what? Used this sugar on the top of them! Really!!

    I love turbinado sugar but REALLY love it for rimming cocktail glasses; the larger crystals provide much more oomph than regular sugar.
