Traditional Irish Soda Bread

I was totally shocked at how good this was.  It was amazing and everyone had more than one piece.

This recipe is a product of times when fancy ingredients weren't available or affordable, so it's made with only the most basic inregedients.

Flour Baking Soda Salt Buttermilk


Try adding raisins or dried currants to your soda bread as a tasty alternative.

I have made this recipe multiple times.  It is always a big hit.  Love the crispy crust.

Legend has it that the cross was cut on the top before baking to ward off the devil and protect the household.
