TWD- Baking with Julia – Irish Soda Bread


Irish Soda BreadI can not believe that I have never made this delightfully simple recipe. I’m almost annoyed with the bread makers in my life for not sharing with me the ease of baking Irish soda bread.

My loaf was a little bit (too) sticky when I took it out of the bowl. I think I could have kneeded in a little more flour to make it a smoother more rounded looking loaf.

I made the traditional recipe without any additions. We had an Irish/American meal on St. Patrick’s Day with corned beef, cabbage, boiled potatoes and my simple delicious warm from the oven fresh-baked bread.

I look forward to making this again with some tasty additions. I think next time I will bake half the recipe and add some cinnamon, sugar and raisins.

This Tuesdays with Dorie baking experience is really taking me out of my baking comfort zone and introducing me to some wonderful recipes. My bread loving family is very impressed with my new adventure.
