Mum shares delicious four-ingredient Aldi scone recipe

With the second lockdown fast-approaching, it’s highly likely lots more of us will turn to baking to soothe our anxiety.

So, it’s time to stock up on some brilliant recipes to see you through the next month and if you’re looking to step away from banana breads and sourdough loaves this lockdown, we have just the thing.

A mum has shared her own version of an Aldi scone recipe which involves just four ingredients, including a rather rogue one… lemonade.

Posting on the Facebook group Aldi Mums, the Australian woman wrote: ‘Seeing as Sunday is my grocery day, and I usually do some baking for school lunches, I thought I’d share this super simple, four ingredient scone recipe.’

She explains that her DIY version costs more than half the price of supermarket packs and makes 15 scones in total, adding: ‘Based on weight of ingredients used, these came to a total £1.12.

‘I’ve seen 4-6 packs of scones in other shops going for £2.25.’

The mum also stressed that the recipe could easily be altered depending on what ingredients a baker has or can get their hands on at the supermarket.

She added: ‘Other variations I’ve made – white chocolate and dried cranberry, sultana, chocolate chip.

‘Orange zest and chocolate chip would be nice. Or maybe some dried apple and cinnamon.’
