My grandmother’s Irish Soda bread recipe is a classic which I make almost every year. Last year, I tried these Irish soda muffins, which were good as well. This year, I wanted to make a whole wheat scone, so I tried the Irish currant scone recipe on this page, except that I substituted raisins for currants.
The scones didn’t rise in the oven as much as I expected so the texture was fairly dense, which may be due to the proportion of whole wheat flour. They were also much less sweet than a typical bakery scone, but still a nice treat with a cup of coffee or tea. There are a few other promising scone recipes on the page, so I’ll probably give one of those a try next time.
