Here is an authentic recipe for Irish Raisin Scones. Enjoy this unique bread experience.



  • 1 Lb. of flour
  • 1 cup of raisins
  • 1 teaspoon of Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon of Baking Powder
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 2 oz Irish Butter




Preheat oven to 425°F.

Sift the flour, baking soda and powder into a bowl. Rub in butter. Add in the sugar and raisins. Stir with a wooden spoon. Make a well in the mix and work in the buttermilk.

Turn on to a floured board and knead briefly. With a wooden rolling pin, roll out the mixture till it is one inch thick. Use a cookie cutter, or an upside-down plastic tumbler, to cut out the scones from the dough. Glaze with a beaten egg.

Bake in a hot oven ( 425°F) for 15 minutes.

Note: To make rock buns, pull a hand full of dough from the rolled out dough and arrange the "rocks" on a baking tray. Coat with sugar and bake.
