Easy Irish Scones


Traditional Irish scones are easy to make! And they’re a fun breakfast (or afternoon) treat with some strong tea or coffee too.

The secret to baking a great scone is in using fresh ingredients. But mainly, buttermilk! Buttermilk and butter together add a richness of flavor to any baked good.

First start by adding your dry ingredients (the flour, sugar, and baking soda) to a large bowl and blend together with a whisk.

Next, add the butter in with the flour mixture and press it into the flour to blend with all the ingredients. You want it to be a crumbly texture. And you can achieve this best with a pastry blender.

Next, add the raisins and buttermilk. As you form the dough, add more buttermilk as needed a tablespoon at a time.

Using your hands, press the dough out into the shape of a disk. Add a bit of flour to your hands to prevent the dough from sticking to them.

Once you’ve pressed the Irish scone dough out into the shape of a disk, use a biscuit cutter or cookie cutter to cut out round scones to bake.

Bake your scones at 375 for about 10 to 15 minutes depending on your oven.
