When my dad was a boy he tried some Irish Soda Bread at the neighbor’s house and liked it so much that he copied the recipe and brought it home to ask his mother to make it. We’ve pretty much been making it every year since then.
My guys don’t really like the raisins/currants and caraway seeds in it, so I now make two loaves, one with the goodies and one plain. The plain one is basically a giant biscuit, but they like it so who am I to argue.
Today I whipped up half a recipe and still divided the two loaves, because we have lots of bread in the house and I didn’t want it to go bad. Since I rarely have buttermilk around, I used soured milk. For the best results, let it sit for a few minutes to start to curdle before using.
Until next time, happy eating.
