Irish Soda Bread Scones (with raisins, orange, and caraway)

These Irish Soda Bread Scones are mini versions of the favorite Irish recipe, with a twist. Orange zest, raisins or currants, and caraway seeds are added, part whole wheat flour is used, and they’re brushed with a mixture of orange juice and butter before baking. You’ll love these delicious soda bread scones with tea or coffee or for breakfast, and they’re freezable so you can have one at a moment’s notice!

Traditional Irish soda bread doesn’t really contain any “stuff,” aside from perhaps some raisins or currants, so you can go ahead and consider this a blasphemous recipe. But these are a super fun, miniature way to enjoy a twist on the traditional recipe, perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!

This recipe allows the raisins/currants, caraway seeds, and orange zest to soften up a bit in orange juice before adding to the mixture, allowing the flavors to bloom and everything to soften. The soaking liquid from that wonderful mixture is mixed with butter and brushed on top of the scones before baking. It’s a bit of an extra step that is so worth it!

Let’s get to it.

Why is it called “soda bread,” anyway?
