Irn Bru Scones: They’re Phenomenal!

Posted on Updated on

IMG_20150915_103930After experiencing the deliciousness of Irn Bru cake we decided to have a look at for other recipe ideas. Once we came across this scone recipe from the Ranald Hotel in Oban we knew we had to try it out!


3 cups self raising flour

1 cup double cream (room temp)

1 cup Irn Bru (room temp)

2 tsp baking powder

Pinch salt

Step 1

Pre heat the oven to 220 degrees celsius

Step 2

Mix the dry ingredients together (remember to sieve your flour so there are no lumps.)


Step 3

Make a well in the centre and add the cream and Irn Bru


Step 4

Mix the ingredients together until all combined. If the mixter is too wet for handling add more flour.

Amass it into a ball and turn out onto a floured surface.

Roll the dough flat, fold into three. Roll again, fold into three again and roll until about 3cm thick.


Step 7

Cut out scones using a floured cookie cutter (ours was heart shaped)!
Brush the tops of the scones with milk or beaten egg.


Step 8

Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown on top. Cool on a wire rack and then EAT!

    “To get a stronger taste of Irn Bru . . . . we suggest a REDUCTION of Irn Bru” Really???

      Sorry, baking lingo there! A reduction of Irn Bru means cooking down a large quantity of Irn Bru to a very tiny amount so that all the flavours and sugars are concentrated.

    What if you don’t or can’t get any Im Bru?

      That is unfortunate! Amazon might sell Irn Bru world wide if you cannot find it in your local stores.
