AS much as we hate to admit it, a pack of scones didn't quite make our list of essential items when we were doing our last shop.
That said, one savvy mum has revealed how you can make your own at home for a little over £1 - and you only need four ingredients.
Posting on the Facebook group Aldi Mums, the Australian parent 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."
All the mum bought to make her scones was self-raising flour, dates, cream and lemonade to give them a citrusy, sweet flavour.
What's more, her homemade version cost over half the price of supermarket packs - and made 15 scones in total.
She continued: "Based on weight of ingredients used, these came to a total £1.12.
How to make the four-ingredient scones
You will need: 385g self raising flour, 130g dates, 236ml cream, 236ml lemonade
“I’ve seen 4-6 packs of scones in other shops going for £2.25."
And the best thing about this recipe is you can switch up the ingredients depending on what's available in your local 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."
Unsurprisingly, other members of the group have now pledged to give these a go themselves.
One replied: "Oh I've never tried them with the addition of dates. YUM."
Another gushed: "Made these today in the air fryer, they were delicious."
"Sounds delish," a third raved.
