They’re really easy to make. You bake them off really fast. But they’re crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle.
Loaded with fruit usually, maybe berries. Something like that. Nuts. My favorite one is just simple with berries because that’s the traditional way you’d have them. I think my favorite part about a scone is actually the crispiness around here.
You see that. And on the base. You see how crispy that is. I always get tons of requests for Irish recipes on Bigger Bolder Baking and that's why my Traditional Irish Scones are one of my favorites to share Casinoslots Singapore.
I’d say it’s because we’re a nation of tea drinkers. That the weather is cold here. It’s rainy a lot. The kettle is always on. I’d say that’s why scones are so popular. Because you’re always having a cup of tea or coffee. And you have something sweet to go with it. But it’s a whole big ritual. You have a hot drink. You have a scone and it’s sweet. You put jam and cream on it. It’s freshly baked. Like my mom would whip these up at home in no time at all.
If she knew someone was coming around in half an hour, she would whip up freshly made scones. Outside of Ireland, I’ve never had a scone that tasted the same. In America they’re very different. They’re a little bit dryer. Sometimes they put icing on them. So it’s a bit of a different experience and they don’t put butter in the middle. Irish Scones are definitely unique. When you come to Ireland you have to try one of these. I definitely like to have my fair share of scones when I’m home in Ireland. Now that I’ve grabbed a quick bite, I'm going to hit the road. Getting around my hometown of Wexford means you’ll be driving a lot.
Everything is really spread out. But at least I get to enjoy the beautiful Irish countryside. So right now we are driving to Carne. Carne is a little kind of village near Rosslare Strand in Wexford and it is known for its seafood. They get great seafood here that comes in from Kilmore Quay. And seafood that comes into this part of Ireland gets shipped all around the world. It’s really fantastic. So we’re going to head to this really popular local brew pub kind of a thing and it’s called The Lobster Pot and it’s been around for donkey’s years.
And it’s really quaint. For me it’s a blast to the past because we used to go here as kids all the time with my brother and my sisters, my mum and my dad. And we used to love it. So it’s really nice to be able to go back. These villages in Ireland are tiny. There are only a few thousand people who live in them because they’re kind of like villages in smaller towns so they’re their own little communities.
Places like the Lobster Pot are part of the fabric that makes Ireland so special. They have so much character that makes each one unlike any other. For years, visitors from far and wide along with locals like my family have gone out of their way to make a trip to the Lobster Pot. I went a little early on a weekday but these place can be jammers during the summer. I have a personal connection to this place, too.
This is the owner, Ann Hearne. She's the mother of a friend, Sharon Hearne-Smith, who is an incredible Irish cookbook author and food stylist. Ann and her husband, Ciarin, have owned the Lobster Pot for 33 years and it’s still an institution.
