  • Additional Information

    These can be made as plain scones by using just plain flour and omitting the oats and bran. Lovely soft rich scones. You can also form into a round, cut with a deep cross and you have a loaf of Brown Soda Bread. If you can't get buttermilk add the juice of half a lemon to ordinary milk and let it sit for 10-20 minutes. I think it's the acidity that makes the difference to the scones
