Irish Soda Bread

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by ellie_

This recipe has been adjusted for high altitude -- if cooking at sea level the baking soda needs to be increased to at least 2 teaspoons and the oven temp lowered to 350. I think this bread is a bit healthier than most soda breads and is great for St. Patrick's Day with Corned Beef and Cabbage. Recipe Source: newspaper clipping.

Appreciate the use of whole wheat in this recipe and the fact that it had just a hint of sweetness. This recipe can be cut in half quite nicely, did make as written and did need to add a little extra milk to get a nice constancy to my dough. Thanks for the post.
