    tappies's Note:

    These scones are quick to make and very moist! Someone gave me the inspiration for this years ago.

      OMG YUM! I used vanilla yogurt (why not?) and dried cranberries. My boyfriend loved them.

      Great recipe! I did substitue buttermilk for the sour milk and I put cinnamon and nutmeg in with dry ingredients and diced apples instead of currents. After brushing tops of scones with yolk/water mixture, I sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. Made them for my Grannie Bride for her 85th. Thanks for sharing.

      You have no idea how thrilled I was to find this recipe... I'd given up on making soda bread for an Irish dinner last week. (Nearly impossible in an electric oven.) These scones are so similar in texture to soda bread; nice little crunch on the outside, soft and moist on the inside. Turned out great in the electric oven! I couldn't find currants, so I used Craisins and chopped-up apricots. The scones are superb with a little orange marmalade & a big glass of milk. :) Thanks SO much for posting this, tappies! :)
