Irish Soda Bread Biscuits

I love a good breakfast scone. Perfect to pair with coffee or tea and fills me up! With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner I thought I’d take one of my family’s favorite quick bread recipes and turn it into a mini version to appease the kids.

This Irish soda bread biscuit recipe is not only simple but can be made with ingredients found right in the pantry. And the results are just heavenly! Flakey, soft, and delicious. Especially with a schmear of butter. 

If you’re looking to start your day off with the luck of the Irish then this biscuit is for you!

Calories 229 kcal


  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter diced
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk see note if you don't have buttermilk


  1. Preheat the oven to 375. If using stoneware, place stoneware in the oven while it's heating up.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Work in butter by hand. Make sure to use your fingers to mix it into the dry ingredients.
  3. Add in the raisins and buttermilk and combine together with your hands. Pat out the dough and form into a disk about 1 inch thick.
  4. Divide the disk into 6 equal pieces and roll into 2-inch rounds. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 to 18 minutes.

Recipe Notes

If you do not have buttermilk, grab some low-fat milk and vinegar (I use apple cider vinegar). Combine 3/4 cup milk with 1 teaspoon vinegar. Stir and let sit for 5 minutes.
