Recently I posted a recipe for Orange-Raisin Irish Soda Bread which is one of my favorite things to bake in the spring. It’s not only quick and easy, but delicious while still being pretty healthy. Today I’m sharing a variation of that recipe with these Irish Soda Scones. In this version, I omitted the orange, added more raisins, swapped out the flax egg for aquafaba, and used unrefined sugar instead of conventional.

How to Make Irish Soda Scones

Irish Soda Scones are super simple to make and can come together in as little as 35 minutes! Start by preheating the oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt. Use a cheese grater to shred in the cold butter and use a pastry blender to incorporate it into the other ingredients. Then fold in the raisins.

In a medium bowl, whisk the buttermilk, aquafaba, and honey. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients. If the dough is still very sticky, add a little more flour until it becomes workable. Place half of the dough on a lightly floured work surface and form it into a circle, about one and a half inches high.

Use a sharp knife to cut the circle into five even triangles. Transfer the scones to the baking sheet and repeat with the remaining dough. Bake the scones for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
