Irish Soda Bread Scones are buttery, tender and slightly sweet from the addition of orange zest, which is delightful! They’re quick, easy and perfect for breakfast, afternoon tea and everything in between!
It’s March and I’m positively delighted. Not only was it almost 60 degrees today but the stores we’re beaming with shamrocks and all things Irish.
My entire family is getting over the flu. I am so over this winter so any signs of Spring are raising my spirits right now.
I’ve already had my once a year shamrock shake and it was amazing! The very next day, I made these Irish Soda Bread Scones. What can I say, it’s all St. Patrick’s Day around here for the next few weeks.
I was on a mission this year to redo most of my St. Patrick’s day recipes as I made them the first year I was blogging. I would like to think that I’m a better photographer now (equipped with a new camera + lens) An update on many recipes on the blog is a must.
Yes, I made them while on the cleanse and yes, I made myself the smallest one ever. 1. I LOVE Irish soda bread 2. I have to test the recipe to make sure it works and 3. No self-control
I used a hodge podge of recipes I found online to create these Irish Soda Bread scones and the result is better than I imagined. They’re soft, buttery and filled with delicious currants, orange zest and caraway seeds.
Throw out any notion you have of dry scones because those don’t live here. Even my picky son absolutely loved them and asked for a 2nd.
I quickly whipped up some honey butter to spread on the scones and it sent them over the top.
These Irish Soda Bread Scones are quick, simple and amazingly delicious.
