    Cookgirl's Note:

    Best fresh out of the oven with butter and jam! I don't know where I found this recipe. If you prefer your Irish soda bread sweeter, feel free to add a little bit more sugar. Also, I don't get entangled in the debate over the authenticity of Irish soda bread; however, if it tastes delicious, that's good enough for me! Try this bread with stew or soup! Note that this is a high rising bread.

      We really enjoy this bread and make it several times a week. I don't add any fruit to it and we're happy with the amount of sugar suggested in the recipe. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that we really prefer a more rustic type of Irish Soda bread, but this bread is a great substitute for us, and will continue to make it often.

      Very good. The kids don't like caraway so I used cinnamon, and I soaked some craisins then drained them and chopped them fine as no one here likes chunks. Great texture. Most of the kids liked it. Will make again using different spices and most likely without fruit.

      I loves me some soda bread! I used this to inaugurate my new cast-iron pot. I used half whole-wheat flour and half white flour, and it worked fine. It was plenty sweet for us—I wouldn't add more sugar, and might even use less next time.
