Flaky Irish Soda Bread Biscuits

Flaky, buttery biscuits that taste like Irish soda bread. YUMZ.

Ingredients

2
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
2
teaspoons granulated sugar
3/4
teaspoon baking soda
3/4
teaspoon salt
2
tablespoons cold unsalted butter, diced
1/2
cup raisins
1
tablespoon caraway seeds
3/4
cup buttermilk

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375ºF. Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
  • 2 In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda and salt to combine. Cut in butter with fingers, a fork or a pastry cutter until butter is the size of small peas and mixture is slightly crumbly.
  • 3 Stir in raisins, caraway seeds and buttermilk with a wooden spoon until just combined. Turn out dough onto a counter and knead very lightly until dough is just combined.
  • 4 Pat dough into a 1-inch thick circle. Use a biscuit or cookie cutter to cut dough into 2-inch rounds. Re-pat the scraps together to make more biscuits. Place biscuits a couple of inches apart on prepared baking sheet.
  • 5 Bake 15 minutes until biscuits are baked through and golden brown. Serve warm or room temperature.

Step By Step  

Take Irish Soda Bread dough and make it into these buttery, flaky biscuits this St. Patrick's Day!

As prepared by Girl Versus Dough,

Irish Soda Bread is so ... Irish. What could be better for St. Patty's Day? (Well, besides green beer.) How about Irish Soda Bread Biscuits?

Butter. Biscuits. Buttery biscuits.

I think that sums up what you need in life.

Okay, okay, so maybe you need a bit more in life, but you definitely also need these Flaky Irish Soda Bread Biscuits.

Inspired by a recipe from the Food Network, these little bebes of buttery goodness are a little sweet, a little savory and of course, buttery. I love them so much I make triple batches every time and eat them all in one sitting.

Just kidding. Maybe.

AHEM – first, combine the dry ingredients for the biscuits in a large bowl. Cut in some cold diced butter until the crumbs are about the size of small peas.

Add the raisins, caraway seeds and buttermilk and stir everything until a dough forms.

Like so. This is not quite a dough yet, but you’ll turn it out onto a counter and shape it into one right … about …

... now. Pat the dough into a 1-inch-thick circle and cut out 2-inch rounds with a cookie or biscuit cutter. You can pat the scraps together to make even more biscuits. No sense wasting any dough when more biscuits can be had!

Bake the biscuits for about 15 minutes in a 375ºF oven until they’re baked through, puffy and golden brown. Now we get to eat ‘em!

Mmm, look at that flaky goodness. Serve them up with your favorite marmalade and, of course, extra butter. You’ll soon see why triple batches are necessary.
