This is really good fun and we were all amazed, it really is magic!

3 Ingredients

  • 600 grams (4 cups) of self-raising flour
  • 300 grams (1 ⅓ cup) double cream
  • 330 ml (1 ½ cups) of cheap lemonade (not 7up) 


Sift flour into a bowl and gradually stir in the cream.

Gradually pour in the lemonade mix and bind into a dough.
You may need to add extra flour if the dough is too wet.

Roll out to 4cm deep (1½ inches) and cut into rounds with a cutter.

Brush tops with milk and place on a baking tray with gaps in between for expansion.

Bake in an electric oven at 200C (400F) gas 6 for about 15- 20 minutes.
Do not overcook or they will be too hard.

This looks like an awesome recipe! Could you tell me if the lemonade to use in this recipe is to be carbonated?
Thank you :)

Hi Diane

Thank you
Jill 25th Aug 2020 PBSS
Is this powdered lemonade mix or a lemon lime soda?
Diane 26th Aug 2020

In the UK we have cheap 330ml can of what we call lemonade, it is Fizzy like Sprite or 7up, but don’t use those you should use the ordinary cheap basic ‘Lemonade’, apparently works better.
Hope this helps

Has anyone tried this with heavy whipping cream (I'm in the US)? I know that heavy cream has less fat (about 36 to 38%). I don't think we can get double cream here.

Grams to cups
130 grams = 1 cup
So 600 grams = 4.61 approximately
Double cream
227 grams =1 cup
So 300 grams = 1.25approximately
330 ml=
11.16 ounces approximately

This fabulous recipe was submitted by a member in the UK - I have updated the Ingredients list to include both metric and imperial units.

What exactly is double cream? Is it comparable to whipping cream?
Solange 11th Oct 2019 Diversional Therapist
Hi Angelica, double cream is a very rich cream with 48% fat, making it the most versatile. I have heard that you can mix Greek yogurt and milk - half and half - as a good alternative.
Talita 9th Oct 2019
Wow this sounds great! I will definitely be giving it a go!
