With St. Patrick’s Day just a few days away, I thought it was a perfect time to share one of our favorite bread recipes – Traditional Irish Soda Bread.
When you think of soda bread, you may think of a round loaf with raisins scattered throughout the middle. This is the “Americanized” version made with egg and butter which makes a much sweeter tasting bread. The original Irish soda bread is just as tasty, and originated out of necessity.
Due to the climate in Ireland, it is difficult to make yeast-leavened bread. Therefore, they used baking soda to make their every day table bread. The best part about making this bread – it takes only 5 minutes to prepare! There are only 5 ingredients, and they can easily be adapted to make it vegan friendly or to accommodate milk allergies.
