Top of my quick bread list. I hate air breads from the store. I of course changed it a bit. I used 1/2 Whole Wheat flour and 1/2 unbleached flour. I also replace the corn oil with coconut oil to increase the health benefits. If I don't have buttermilk, which is most of the time, I use a mixture of 1/2 milk and 1/2 sour cream. I also ditch the raisans most of the time and never do the caraway seeds. I don't bother with brushing the top with milk I do this with coconut oil after it is baked to keep the top soft. My kids like it better that way. I also double it more than not. These are all minor changes to the basic recipe.

This bread was SO good. I brought it to a St's Pat's dinner party and it was a huge hit. I substituted poppy seeds for caraway b/c the grocery store didn't have any caraway seeds. Not purist but still delish. Quick and easy too.

Delicious. Simple recipe. Came out perfectly. I am an Irish girl and I have had many different soda breads in my life. This one is staying in my cookbook. Everyone at the lunch party I brought it to devoured it. There was one piece left at the end of the day and there was a debate about who got to take it home. Thanks!

This was awesome!! Best soda bread I've ever had! My husband loved it. Wasn't sure about the caraway seeds, but it gave it an interesting element. Thanks

This was really good. I had to leave out the raisins and caraway seeds since I didn't have any. My kids and husband gobbled the bread up with butter and honey on top, they could hardly wait for it to cool down.

This was pretty good soda bread. Dense and heavy, makes a nice loaf. Used leftovers to make Bailey's Bread pudding and it was delicious! Thanks for posting.

I love this bread. It is so easy. I followed the recipe, but omitted the caraway seeds. I checked the center with a toothpick after 40 minutes, but it was still gooey, so I baked it for another 10 minutes or so. I think it's delicous. I will make this again. Thank you.
