Our Scottish Bread is slightly sweet, so we suggest serving it at breakfast or with your favorite afternoon tea.


4 cups flour

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces

1 1/3 cups buttermilk


Honey Tips

Honey Is One of the Oldest Foods

Honey is one of the oldest foods in existence. It was found in the tomb of King Tut and was still edible since honey never spoils.


Preheat oven to 425°. Flour a large, heavy baking sheet.
In a large bowl combine first five ingredients. Add butter and mix with fork until a fine meal is formed. In a separate bowl, whisk together 1 cup of the buttermilk and the honey until blended. Mix buttermilk into dry mixture. Gradually add remaining buttermilk until a soft dough is formed.
Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until it holds together. Shape dough into an 8-inch round, about 1 1/2 inches high. Cut into 4 wedges. Place on floured baking sheet and bake about 30 minutes or until golden brown.
Yields: 4 small loaves
