"Delicious and easy to make soda bread scones, which are perfect when served alongside soups, stews or an Irish or Scottish breakfast. These can be whipped up in a trice and make a nice alternative to bread.........they are also delectable when eaten hot, split and spread with fresh butter."

"I wasn't sure about the dough consistency - guessing it's very similar to the US biscuit dough. This is my first time making scones and I don't think I did them right. They did taste good though. I guess that is all that matters! lol We enjoyed them for dinner with recipe #367834. Made for the February 2010 Aussie/NZ recipe swap. Thanks for sharing!"
"These are so simple, but so yummy! They were just perfect with a batch of broccoli-cheese soup; the density of the scone was a nice foil to the creaminess of the soup. I will say that mine might have come out a bit more dense as I subbed spelt flour for half of the AP, but they were still delicious. I also halved the recipe and got 8 good-sized scones. Made for Veg*n Swap 18, for our VIP chef!!"
"Mmmm, another great scones recipe from you, Karen! I had high hopes for these as I luv soda bread and scones and they did meet the expectations completely! They are dense and cumbly soft on the inside with a lovely crust on top-just like a soda bread scone should be. Oh and the taste is so yummy, too! Very bready and nutty due to the whole grain flour and perfect with soups! I can see me making these delectable little things quite often in autumn as we often have soups then and these are just too good to pass by. :) Making half the recipe I ended up with 7 big scones (7 cm in diameter), which I baked for 15 minutes at 210Â°C. THANKS SO VERY MUCH for sharing this scumptious recipe with us! Made and reviewed for my honorary aussie/french/british friend in Ed'n#8-Make My Recipe. :)"
