  • 2 tsp Sea salt flakes

  • 224g Lemonade

  • 184g Whipping cream

  • 3 Egg yolks

  • 100ml milk

  • 300g Caster sugar

  • Scones:

    Preheat the oven to 180C and line oven trays with parchment paper.

  • 2.

    Sieve the flour and baking powder into a very large bowl then add salt.

  • 3.

    Combine the lemonade and cream, and add to the flour. Use a knife to just bring the mix together.

  • 4.

    Turn onto a clean surface and knead until the dough just comes together, pat to an inch high.

  • 5.

    Using a 6cm cutter, cut inch high rounds (you may need to dip the cutter in flour first to prevent sticking).

    Mix together the yolks and milk and use a pastry brush to lightly cover the top of each scone.

    Place into the preheated oven and cook for 20-25 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Serve warm with jam and verbena cream.

  • Verbena cream:

  • 1.

    Place the cold cream into a large kitchen mixer bowl, use the whisk attachment on high speed to achieve soft peaks. Fold in the chopped verbena and whisk to firm peaks.

  • Strawberry jam:

  • 1.

    Hull and cut strawberries into quarters and toss with sugar overnight.

  • 2.

    Cook at high heat in a pot, triple the height of the mixture.
