With St. Patrick’s Day still on my mind, I decided to make Irish Soda Bread. My first encounter with Irish Soda Bread was at an Irish pub in Whistler Village (British Columbia). I was instantly hooked.
Irish Soda Bread is considered a quick bread because there is no yeast and therefore it doesn’t need time to rise. Simply mix the ingredients, form the sticky dough into a ball, and bake it in a greased pan. The result is a large mounded loaf of bread with a golden, crusty exterior and a dense, scone-like interior. Many recipes call for caraway seeds and raisins but I prefer making it plain. My family likes to eat the soda bread with non-Irish foods like chili and soups. And the leftovers make a yummy breakfast when warmed and served with butter and jam.
*I have successfully cut the recipe in half and the result is a delicious, scone-like bread. Even though the dough was very runny (we basically just spooned it into a mound on the pan because we couldn’t shape it), it baked up nicely and I cooked it for just under 30 minutes so it was still moist inside.
