My Bisquick " Irish Soda Bread "

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by lesliecoy

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.
