Lovely. Really "Irish" soda bread is just a scone, isn't it? I added caraway seeds. So tender and luscious. Perfect with corned beef, scalloped cabbage and white beans with paprika. MMmmmmmm!

This was nice, quick recipe for soda bread. I really appreciated the ability to make it healthy by using 2 cups of white flour and 2 cups of wheat (like VickiKech I'm sure the texture would have been slightly better had I followed instructions to a T). I used Splenda and raisins. Also, I used a light Parkay spread instead of butter. My loaf baked up quicker than the stated time. 3/28/08- One year later, and I wanted to make this bread for St. Patty's day. However, I didn't have yogurt on hand so I substituted unsweetened applesauce and it was delish! I believe that the applesauce made the bread moister. Next time, I've been requested to make this bread with chocolate chips instead of raisins. Yum!

Excellent Recipe tasted delicious I'm only sharing this because due to allergies and what was in the house.... ((Also I was looking for a sweet dessert like bread for a 5 year old )) I did have to change some things so passing on what worked for those who might be in a similar predicament 1) Like someone else had done I used applesauce instead of yogurt 2) I used Refined coconut oil instead of butter 3) I used Raisin instead of currents? But as I said it came out perfect as a dough though it is a bit sticky but I didn't have much issue needing it.... Enjoy!!
