"This is the best Irish Soda Bread recipe ever! It comes out crunchy on the outside and soft, sweet and moist inside. I got this from an old Irish cookbook in high school to make for an Irish feast we had in history class."

  1. Don't all Irish Soda Bread recipes call for "caraway seeds"? They do in Ireland!

  1. I'm with "better than expected" - loved it! Also made 1/2 recipe, using a 6" cake pan and baked it for 45 min. at 350. It made a really cute, small round loaf that was great for 2 or 3.

  2. OMG. Better than expected! The perfect balance of savory and sweet. So fluffy with a gorgeous crust. I sifted the flour before use and didn't have buttermilk on hand so I used a mixture of 1% milk, sour cream, lemon and vinegar. Worked a treat!

  3. Oh my gosh! I just made this with dried cranberries and it is fabulous! I used dried buttermilk powder in the dry mix and water for the wet. Worked beautifully! Thank you SO much for the wonderful recipe! I will make it for years to come.

  4. wow I would give this ten stars if I could.This is the one my mother always made and I dont have the rexcipe and she is departed.I remember her making it sweet and as my choice we used 1&1/2 cups of sugar and it was perfect.Thanks so much for posting.update I like to bake mine in a cast iron Dutch oven we live the crust that it makes.

  5. My Irish neighbor made this every St. Patrick’s day when I was growing up. You use golden raisins and no caraway seeds. It is not an every day bread, it is for feast days. Mrs. Canney told us this bread Is made especially for St. Patrick’s day to break up the Lenten fast with milk, egg and butter.
