Sheila's Irish Soda Bread

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by JackieOhNo

Growing up in an Irish household, I have had the pleasure of tasting many a soda bread. It seems like every woman had her own recipe, and I have tasted them all. Some are brown and some are white, some have raisins and caraways, some have only one or neither, some are cakey and some are bready, some are round and some are oblong. This recipe uses sour cream instead of the traditional buttermilk, and is on the "cakey" side. You can bake them in either a 8x4-inch loaf pan or an 8-inch round pan.

Fabulous Irish soda bread recipe! We loved this. It's a perfect consistency and density. I like that that it was slightly sweet, but not overly. Perfect.
