    JackieOhNo!'s Note:

    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.

      I made one loaf using Splenda for the sugar and DH and I enjoyed half of if it with a scrambled egg dinner last evening. Personally I would like it a bit less sweet but DH and a friend wiped out the second half awhile after dinner and they both loved it as it was. I'll be the first to admit that I have a lower sweet tolerance. All in all, this is one great soda bread.

      I love Irish Soda Breads and this one is the bomb. JackieOhNo...I love your soda bread recipes, another winner here. So much flavor, excellent textures, perfect crumb and the taste is too die for. Equally as good toasted or plain, spread with a little soft butter, yummm. Thank you for filling my cravings beautifully, I will be enjoying this for my breakfast for the next few days. Made for the Best of 2013.
