Amazing Soda Bread. Simple easy delicious. Light moist and crumbly. I divided the recipe into four loaves (1/2 lb ea) and left one plain, added raisins to two (love those raisins) and raisins and caraway seeds to the last. four round loaves that I baked like a four leaf clover. Cross hatched the tops and each quarter section was just the right serving size--but who could eat just one!! The were all amazing Thaielephant
