Irish Oats Scones/Irish Fruits & Oats Scones

Scones, these baked single serving quick breads or cakes are just prefect to kick start a day, if you are not a breakfast person trust me you will never refuse scones. Scones are quite different from teacakes and other sweet breads which calls for yeast. Scones are sold commercially round, but most of the homemade scones takes various shapes like triangles, squares or rounds. I just love scones, as they are easy to carry and go away. Obviously i do bake varieties of scones as this baked goodies are easy to put together and bake. Irish oats scones are quite popular and an incredible healthy breakfast to be enjoyed with some jams or else simply with honey. This easy variety of scones comes from a farmhouse in Ireland.

I am not a big fan of oats and I like recipes where oats are put to use and it kind of gets disguised in the dish. The scones look fabulous and the blogging marathon seems to be progressing wonderfully!
