    DeSouter's Note:

    I have never found an Irish Soda Bread recipe (or commericially available loaf) that can hold a candle to this recipe. It is simple to make and you can also mix the dry ingredients, add a hang-tag listing the wet ingredients and baking instructions and you have an outrageously good gift. This is an absolutely authentic Irish recipe, and if you have never had a Soda Bread with fruit or caraway, it is probably due to the baker's preference to omit it, cost cutting measures or the way in which this recipe is prepared in a few regions of the country. Note: If you don't like caraway seeds, currants or raisins, don't add them. And don't overmix this dough. I blend wet and dry ingredients with a large spooon only until incorporated. Also, if like Pretty111, you provide a low-star review because you THINK the recipe isn't traditional, don't bother. This recipe is not listed as "traditional", just delicious. I think that if you do not try a recipe, you have some nerve giving it a low-star review. It is just unfair.

      Great recipe - but one glaring omission is no salt. I added a half teaspoon (it would be a bland bread without the salt). I didn't have buttermilk, but soured milk worked just fine. Really fabulous, flavorful bread. This was my first try with Irish Soda Bread, which I usually find dry and too crumbly. The four of us scarfed nearly the whole loaf!!

      Oh my goodness! When I saw kittencal liked this recipe I knew I had to give it a try. As usual she's absolutely right...this recipe is for sure a keeper. It yields such a tender moist loaf and not at all heavy (a problem with many a soda bread recipe). I love this warm straight from the oven and later toasted,buttered along with a mug of tea. It also freezes beautifully. Thanks so much for this perfectly written recipe that gave me the ever elusive 5 star loaf of Irish soda bread. Hats off!!!
