Recipe by Midwest Maven
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.

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.
