My Bisquick " Irish Soda Bread "

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 30 mins

The original recipe came from but I changed it a little to make it more "diet friendly". Sometimes I leave out the "optional" caraway seeds since I don't really care for them that much. I like to use 1/4 cup orange flavored dried cranberries (craisins) and 1/4 cup golden raisins. Be sure to plump whichever you use in the 3/4 cup of water in the microwave just short of boiling before adding.

This had great flavor (I included the caraway) but was a bit too crumbly (I often find things made with Bisquick to be too crumbly). I cut recipe in half and baked in a smaller dish for about for about 20 minutes. Ingredient list was not in order of when added (sorry, pet peeve) :). Made for Spring 2013 PAC.
