    Indyellen's Note:

    A clasic Irish soda bread. I found it in the "Irish Heritage Cookbook", but have modified it slightly. Also can have herbs added.

      Just took this bread out of the oven about 30 minutes ago... and it's already half gone! Family loves it and gave it many compliments. I made it exactly according to directions, no substitutions. Not sure why anyone takes the time to make yeast bread, when this is so easy and fast.

      I have been making this Irish soda bread for St. Patrick’s Day for several years and it is a favorite! The Irish Heritage Cookbook is one of my favorite Irish cookbooks.
