Two days until St. Patrick’s Day and instead of baking my Irish Carbomb Cupcakes, I decided to go for a more traditional recipe: Irish Soda Bread.
Real Irish Soda Bread has a tender, dense crumb and rough crust. It is not sweet and can be served with butter and jam at breakfast or alongside dinner. Now, American-Irish soda bread is sweeter and has caraway seeds and raisins. I opted for a more American style sans caraway seeds. Fair warning: this recipe makes enough bread for an Irish clan.
