I have just put this in oven and waiting to see how it turns out. Not sure about it, it wasn't "wet" as previous review stated, in fact seemed to be too much flour OR not enough liquid. I have never had too much luck with traditional irish soda bread and would love to be able to make it in traditional manner as it is so easy. I will review again after it comes out. I have now made this 2x and the first time I mixed by hand and found that after baking it did not have the texture I thought it should have but we ate it and enjoyed. The 2nd time, I mixed with a dough hook on my KitchenAid using only a couple of mins, still there was too much flour so I added a little more milk which turned out better for moulding into a round load, after baking, it was a little lighter and better texture. Still it was received by all as a good bread to go with our corn beef and cabbage Irish dinner. I will make this again.
This is really wonderful! Took it to my church today and people raved about it and wanted the recipe. The only thing I had to guess on was the oven temperature. I baked it at 350. Warm with a little butter on it, yum!
