Fancy Breakfast Friday: Soda Bread Scones


If you are like me, you like to plan ahead.  And so here is a great St. Patrick’s day breakfast, a full 51 weeks ahead of time!  You’re welcome.

When these came out of the oven, I worried because I had ten minutes to spare before the kids got up for breakfast.  Would they be stale before anyone woke up?  But this recipe is from Smitten Kitchen and she American-ized it with an egg and I’m not sure what else, but they lasted long enough to be eaten for breakfast and snack.  So they were delicious enough to be gobbled up, and they didn’t become immediately stale.  High praise for soda bread.  I followed this recipe and I left out the caraway seeds because I’m not a monster.


I served these with a fried (Luke) or a scrambled (Jack) egg.  These may be my new St. Patrick’s Day breakfast.  I will remind you a week in advance next year.  Sláinte!

    Is that actual Beleek (?) Irish china? So pretty. The only soda bread I had this year was a crumb of that weirdo’s at work. It was pretty good.

    Hi Megan!

    I’m living vicariously through your scones. I had a hard boiled egg for breakfast (wah wah).

    Great to see you last night. I did record each song the boys did each for Jazz Combo and the main band (focused on their side of the band stage). If you find you’d like copies I’ll figure out how to convey them to you (I’m sure my kids would be able to figure it out LOL).

    Hope you’ll stay warm today and enjoy Spring Break!

    Had some store bought soda bread from Heinen’s that was sweet, dense, to die for but lasted a few days. What unnatural thing was in there? It did have raisins .

      Traditional Irish Soda bread has just flour, salt, baking soda and buttermilk. Caraway seeds optional. So usually it’s gets stale pretty quickly. I am sure the bread from Heinen’s was delicious!
