This is a great, yummy plain soda bread! It has the perfect texture with a soft centre and a lovely crunchy crust! The taste is nutty and really good for slathering it with butter. On its own its a little too floury for my taste. Maybe adding some raisins could help that... I scaled the recipe back to one serving, baking it for 25 minutes and it turned out fab! THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this yummy recipe with us, Derf! It made my St. Patrick's Day special!
