      This was so easy to make and I could hardly wait for it to be cool enough to slice! I had it with butter and home-made strawberry & rhubarb jam. Lovely! I used 50/50 plain and stoneground wholemeal flour as I prefer brown soda bread. I guess the wholemeal flour was the reason that I had to use additional buttermilk to bind it all together (about 1/4 cup). I'll defenitely be making this again! *UPDATE* I have finaly tried the recipe as it is written because I was out of wholemeal flour and just wanted to add, that it's still a great tasting soda bread, that I just can't stop eating!

      GREAT stuff. Not a raisen bread, herb bread, or wheat bread. Just a simply delicious pure Irish soda bread. I'm sitting in a Nairobi guest house with minimal ingredients. Had to leave out the cornstarch and soured some milk by adding vinegar. Sprinkled with salt before baking. The bread was excellent. My housemates are raving over a simple meal of bean soup and soda bread. Doesn't get any better than this for a cook.
