Happy St. Patrick's Day! My boys have been talking about this day for the last week… The funny thing is, we usually don't go all out for St. Patrick's Day, but we have made a few crafts and created yummy recipes in the past. Speaking of recipes, Irish Soda Bread just seemed the perfect recipe to share; but I decided to switch it up a little and make the bread into biscuits, or scones.
I mixed up a batch in no time. These scones, baked in a muffin tin, are so simple and easy to make. I didn't realize how big a hit they'd be, but Jacob absolutely loved them. We actually had to limit how many he could have in one day. Goodness!
Below you'll find a printable recipe. Enjoy!
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tbsp. granulated sugar
- 1 tbsp. cinnamon
- 1 tbsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 egg
- 2 cups skim milk
- 4 tbsp. butter, melted
- 1 cup raisins
- Pre-heat oven to 400° and grease muffin tins.
- Mix dry ingredients together.
- Melt butter and add to dry ingredients.
- Beat egg and milk together, also mixing into dry ingredients. If more milk is needed, add ¼ cup at a time to dough mixture; dough should be the consistency of a stiff biscuit dough.
- Finally, add raisins to the mixture.
- Add dough, by the spoonful, to muffin tins.
- Bake at 400° for about 30-40 minutes, or until tops of scones are golden.
- Serve while warm and enjoy! You can also drizzle with a simple powdered sugar frosting, if desired.
