White Chocolate and Passionfruit Scones

It's school holidays here in Sydney so this post will be brief! Holiday baking, we kept it simple; six ingredients, one bowl, one spatula. I try to avoid rubbing butter into flour wherever possible and while child labour was at hand we had a deadline, so the Australian Women's Weekly lemonade scone recipe was perfect. We juiced four neglected, seriously wrinkly passionfruit off the window sill and threw in some white chocolate from the stash in the fridge. The lemonade makes the scones super light but we substituted a little with passionfruit juice so these were not as amazingly fluffy as usual, further tweaking required. I have some freeze dried passionfruit powder somewhere in my pantry, next time I'll add that too and intensify that tangy flavour.  I'm not sure how long these keep; I sent some to my mum's with the kids, the rest were gone by morning. This evening we're going for four ingredients, one pan, one bowl and a spatula, rice bubble marshmallow squares mmmm...
