This recipe comes from my college roommate, Becky, who belongs to a very Irish family! Her family prefers this recipe because it's much sweeter than most soda breads. I like it because it's quick and easy!


  1. Beat eggs.
  2. Add all ingredients except buttermilk; mix.
  3. Add buttermilk; mix.
  4. Pour batter into a 9x13-inch pan.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center tests clean.
  6. Note: If you use soy buttermilk and dairy-free margarine, this recipe can be dairy-free.

This is my kind of recipe-simple and delicious. I poured the batter in a cast iron skillet, and in 45 minutes at 350, it turned out wonderful.

Excellent! This was a very different sort of soda bread altogether-it cooks in a large pan, cuts into squares, and it puffier and sweeter than the type I usually have eaten. We loved this recipe and will make it again often. Note: I assumed that the margarine should be melted and slightly cooled first in order for it to mix properly ino the batter and this worked out fine.

Excellent!!! I have made this for the last three years for St.Patrick's Day. My mother in law ways takes some of the leftovers. But it does not last long! I have even converted to gluten free for my daughter. Still great! Will keep this recipe forever.
