Recipe: Wexford’s D’Lush Café scones


Word has it that the people of Wexford were missing their local coffee shop’s scones so much, that D’Lush Café had to share their recipe.

At this stage, you’d be forgiven for thinking the team here at Irish Country Magazine had decided to turn Ireland’s much-loved lifestyle magazine into Irish Baking Magazine. But we can’t help it. When we’re not hard at work putting the next issue together we’re baking in our kitchens. And it appears you are too – every time we open Instagram we’re seeing more delicious recipes being shared! That’s how we came across these indulgent scones by Wexford café D’Lush, which is usually based in the Wexford Arts Centre.

Rumour has it that the locals in Wexford town were missing the D’Lush scones so much, that the café went ahead and shared their recipe so that customers could still get their fix during the lockdown. Find the tasty recipe below.
