With St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, I'm thinking about making Irish Soda Bread. I found this recipe for Irish Soda Bread Scones which merge Irish Soda Bread and scones – two of my favorite things. Try serving these warm with a cup of tea or coffee!
- 3 cups plain flour
- 1 cup of buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter cut into small pieces
- 1 cup raisins
- Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
- In bowl of electric mixer or a large mixing bowl, blend the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cream of tartar.
- Add the butter to the dry ingredients and mix for 2 minutes. The butter should be in tiny lumps distributed pretty evenly through the entire flour mixture when you're done.
- Add raisins and mix about 1 minute.
- Add buttermilk and continue mixing about 1 minute. If you are not using an electric mixer, knead the dough on a floured board for a minute or so. Make sure to put a bit of flour on your hands to keep the dough from sticking to them.
- Drop a large spoonful of the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheets.
- Bake 25 minutes or until golden brown.
