Irish Soda Bread
Happy almost St. Patrick’s Day! I’m not Irish, but this is one of my favorite days of the year. I can’t even begin to express how excited I am that it falls on a Saturday this year. I’ll be spending the day in St Paul enjoying the festivities and drinking some green beer :). How will you be celebrating? This recipe is a great thing to add to your weekend list.
Irish Soda Bread is one of the easiest bread recipes there is. It’s a quick bread so no yeast involved. The buttermilk gives the bread its tangy taste and the baking soda helps it rise (hence the name). Don’t let the thick crust fool you, because although this bread is dense the inside is wonderfully tender.
