From OldFashionedLiving.com. These are a potato pancake not a scone: very small amount of flour, no leavening, no milk or cream. Perhaps Irish "scones" are something entirely different than what I am accustomed to. Regardless-enjoy your Irish "Scone" Pancakes! PS you can most certainly use fresh herbs in place of the dried!
