TWD: Irish Soda Bread

on March 20, 2012

I have to say, I have never made irish soda bread before.  I have always loved it, but it has been some time since I have tasted it.  So this was a real treat.  I was so shocked at the small ingredient list!  And the little work involved!  If I knew it was so easy, I would have made this years ago!  In a quest to get my kids to try more things, I added raisins to it.  My 2 year old daughter loved it (she is my little foodie), and my 4 year old son would even try it (he doesn’t like to try anything new, not even dipping stuff in chocolate fondue!).  As soon as I cut into this, I knew I was going to be in heaven.  It looked so moist and tender.  I cut a small piece, but it was devoured in seconds!  Oh, irish soda bread, how I miss thee!  My husband tried it and didn’t care for the raisins.  He felt like it “confused” his taste buds.  He didn’t know if he should be eating the bread for breakfast or as a side dish.  I said, “eat it anytime, anywhere!”  Here are some pictures of the progress.  You can find the recipe at this week’s TWD: Baking with Julia hosts: Chocolate Moosey and My Culinary Mission.

  1. Looks great Susan! I agree — it is to be eaten any time anywhere!!!! I loved it and can’t get enough. Just needed some apple butter to put on it, but I settled for sugar free jam.

  2. Ditto for eating it anytime and anywhere!! Looks good!
