Best fresh out of the oven with butter and jam! I don't know where I found this recipe. If you prefer your Irish soda bread sweeter, feel free to add a little bit more sugar. Also, I don't get entangled in the debate over the authenticity of Irish soda bread; however, if it tastes delicious, that's good enough for me! Try this bread with stew or soup! Note that this is a high rising bread.
