    I was looking for a recipe for soda bread that would have applesauce, and I found this. The only reason I tweaked it is because I didn't have raisins, and I decided to see if coconut cooking oil would work just as well as butter (because we were running low, and I wanted it ON the bread!). I'm very happy with how it came out! I baked it in a convection oven, so it was actually done in about 20minutes. Thanks for sharing this!

    This recipe looked promising and thought it would be a nice change for soda bread, but, 2 tsps. of baking soda!!! I feel there must be a mistake because all you would taste is soda. Perhaps someone else out there changed this, and if so, how?

    I just tried this bread and it is delicious! It was very easy to make, too. If you like raisins I would double the amount to 1 cup. This bread is yummy warmed/toasted with butter and jam or even cream cheese.

    I'd luv to give this 5 stars since it is a wonderful, light and yummy bread that has exactly the same texture as the soda breads I used to eat when living in Ireland. The taste, though is even better! I absolutely love the added raisins and think 1/2 cup is plenty (and I DO like raisins a lot!). But unfortunately I had troubles with the dough: Like Kitchen Little said, 2 cups of flour is just not enough. I ended up nearly doubleing the amount of flour used and the dough was still sticky. I decided to go ahead with it anyways and it turned out beautifully. So, maybe you'll revise the flour quantities and then I can come back and change my rating. Thank you so much for sharing this outstanding recipe with us, A Messy Cook!
