Soda Bread Scones

Soda Bread Scones

Fun news everyone! The Vegetarian Times website is all new and fancy and redone! Oooo la laaa! I have only made scones once before when I made this recipe for Pumpkin Scones with Spiced Glaze. Jake’s friend Rodney came down from Fairbanks to visit Maegan and Eli up in Phoenix, and over the weekend they all skipped down to Tucson to go camping with us in Madera Canyon. I made this new scone recipe for breakfast the morning we left to go camping. This new recipe for Soda Bread Scones looked like it would be tasty but not too sweet. The original recipe called for currants, but Jake voted for dried cranberries. The cranberries were delicious, but I think they overpowered the more subtle flavors in the scone mix. Next time I’ll go with raisins or the prescribed currants. These were very easy to make. There were few ingredients and it really didn’t take very long.

Soda Bread Scones
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 ½ cups whole-wheat flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon coarse salt
¾ cup plain soy milk
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
¾ cup dried cranberries or raisins
8 teaspoons raw sugar

1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat baking sheet with cooking spray.
2. Whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in bowl.
3. Whisk together soymilk, maple syrup, and dried fruit in a separate bowl.
4. Stir soymilk mixture into flour mixture until soft dough forms.
5. Transfer to floured work surface, and shape into 8-inch round.
6. Cut round into 8 wedges.
7. Transfer to prepared baking sheet, and sprinkle each wedge with 1 teaspoon sugar.
8. Bake 20 minutes, or until browned.
