  • 1 3/4 cups Irish stone-ground coarse wholemeal or Irish-style wholemeal flour
  • 1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 3/4 cups buttermilk
  • Clarified Butter


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together both flours, oatmeal, salt, and baking soda. Add buttermilk and stir until mixture is the consistency of a thick batter.

  2. Preheat a griddle or cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add enough clarified butter to lightly coat. Drop 3 tablespoons batter onto the griddle and cook, turning once, until golden and risen, 5 to 6 minutes per side.

  3. Remove scones from heat and keep covered with a clean kitchen towel until ready to serve; serve warm.
