Traditional soda bread gets a tasty twist in this version, flavoured with soured cream, cheese and fried onion.

Top Review by Lightly Toasted

This was good, but it didn't cook all the way thru in the middle, even though the outside was golden brown. Also.....as I was preparing it, realized that there should probably be SODA in soda bread, lol. I compared this recipe to other recipes, so I added 2 tsp of soda.
