COOKING: Bake some delicious scones to share with your family on a picnic.


  • 3 cups (450g) of self raising flour
  • 1 cup of thickened cream/ heavy cream*
  • 1 cup of lemonade (like Sprite)


  • Preheat oven to 200C.
  • Place flour in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add cream and lemonade and mix to combine.
  • Turn the mixture out onto a well-floured board and knead with extra flour until smooth (mixture will be very sticky initially).
  • Use your hand to flatten the scone dough out to about 2-3cm (about 1 inch) thick and then cut into rounds with a floured scone cutter.
  • Place scones onto a lined baking tray so that they are just touching and then bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Scones are cooked when they are golden brown and can be easily pulled apart where they are joined.

Enjoy a picnic with your scones and loved ones. Submit a photo of your scones to enter the prize draw.


Submit a photo, video, illustration or story to share with the community of creative ways you have been staying safe and connected with others during lockdown.
