Sunshine and spring time and something to celebrate with bubbles of course! Now why not mix those precious Prosecco bubbles with baking and make a sweet treat that is super easy and tastes divine. My 3 Ingredient Prosecco Scones (aka posh lemonade scones!) are a tea time treat that you can whip up in barely 20 minutes from start to finish. Now that’s worth celebrating any day!
It’s my daughter Idgy’s 22nd birthday today and of course we’ll be having a cake this evening. But this afternoon it’ll be these amazing prosecco scones with whipped cream and my quick and easy strawberry compote.
Come on, what could be better than actually making the scones with some prosecco. It means I get to drink some whilst I’m taking the photos for this post, now that’s a result.
Only 3 ingredients!
Yes, you read that right. These super scones have only 3 ingredients. Now, come on, how easy is that. It’s as easy as pie. Especially when one of those ingredients is Prosecco. Would almost be rude not to make these tasty wee scones. Never knowingly rude and all that….
You’ll no doubt have heard of lemonade scones. How they only have 3 ingredients and come together so easily. Well, that got me to thinking. Why not use something a little bit more special than good old lemonade to make my scones. Why not use bubbles. Prosecco bubbles!
So the idea for Prosecco Scones was hatched and I was determined to make them as soon as possible.
Scones are such a standard tea time treat here in Scotland. No self respecting afternoon tea (or cookie shine as was the old Scot’s term) would be complete without a good scone on the table. I’ve made loads of scones over the years. Especially when I was writing my Scottish baking book Simply Scottish Cakes & Bakes.
I’ve made scones with everything from treacle to tea, fruit to cheese. But I had yet to make scones using prosecco in the ingredients.
What are the 3 ingredients?
- Prosecco (of course!) or lemonade
- Double cream (that’s heavy cream to all those in the States)
- Self raising flour
That’s all folks!
Super Easy 3 Ingredient Prosecco Scones
When I say super easy I am not in any way, shape or form exaggerating. All you are going to do here in bring together your self raising flour, the double cream and the Prosecco in a bowl with a wooden spoon.
This dough comes together so easily and it is like silk to work with.
Simply bring it together into a dough and place on to your floured work surface and gently roll out to about 2.5cm/1″ thick. I used a small cutter as I wanted to make lots of little scones.
How many scones does this recipe make?
I got 12 small scones. If you were going for a standard sized scone you’d get 6 from this recipe. Want more scones? Then just double up on the recipe. Remember, there will be less Prosecco for you to drink though. Consider your priorities here…..
How long do these scones take to make?
From start to finish I’d say 20 minutes. I had my dough all brought together, rolled out and on to a lined baking tray in 5 minutes and then popped them into a preheated oven for 15 minutes. Of course this depends on your oven. You want your scones to be just turning golden.
How long do they keep for?
What a stupid question. Honestly, you think you’re not going to guzzle the whole lot of these prosecco scones in one go. Okay, if you really think you won’t manage to eat them all in one go they will keep in an airtight box or tin for up to 2 days. However, all scones are best on the day they are baked.
Can you freeze these scones?
Yes of course you can. Just wrap well in cling film and pop them into a freezer bag and they will keep for up to 3 months. Defrost thoroughly.
Sweet Scone Perfection
These little beauties come out so well that they have the perfect scone break in the middle. By that I mean that you don’t even need a knife to half them to put in your cream and jam. They just naturally pull apart in the right place. Now that’s what I call a good scone.
What to serve with these prosecco scones
Well it has to be your very best jam and a dollop of cream of course. We are in the premier cream tea league here. Strawberry jam is the most traditional in a scone. I went for my Strawberry and Redcurrant jam here just because I happened to have a jar opened.
Well if you are unfortunate enough not to have any prosecco on hand you could always use champagne. Well why not, if you are going to open a bottle to drink it you might as well make some bubbly scones too. You could use any sparkling wine, like Cava or pink bubbles, whatever you have on hand. If all else fails use lemonade.
So Happy Birthday to my gorgeous girl. I know she loves these super easy 3 ingredient prosecco scones because I try all my recipes out on her while she is home from uni.
If you fancy going scone crazy, then here are some I’ve made earlier for you;
