A few weeks ago, I tried a new bread recipe. I thought Irish Soda Bread would be one of a few St Patricks Day recipes to share with you.
If I made this again, I would cook it about 5 minutes less. It wasn’t dry, but I’d like it to be a bit moist. I made this change in the recipe below.
Add wet ingredients.
Bake at 325 (50-60 minutes)
Slice & serve warmAdd Irish stew and you have an authentic Irish meal.
