TRADITIONAL IRISH SODA BREAD
This is a traditional "scone" which is what we in Donegal call it (as opposed to soda bread as many people know it). The recipe here is more traditional than many you will find on the internet and in recipe books as it uses only the ingredients that would have been used as opposed to the various additions we see nowadays.
My recipe sticks to those traditional ingredients but I understand that some of those ingredients might be hard for people to source, for instance buttermilk but I have a fail-safe alternative for you.
