I just tried this recipe for the first time, and I immediately wanted to put it online so that I would always be able to find it. It's from La Leche League's cookbook, _Whole Foods for the Whole Family_. Of course a whole wheat bread is always different from a white flour bread, but I was amazed at how well this recipe captures the taste and texture of Irish soda bread. It's dense and crumbly and a bit sweet, and very delicious. It's also quite easy to make. It's a "quick bread" recipe -- no yeast, no rising -- but you shape it into round loaves, and it feels more "bread-y" to me than most quick breads. I can't wait to make it again. Enjoy!
