Short but solid Irish Soda Bread recipe collection
Whether you’re Irish or not, Irish Soda Bread is one of those things that everyone enjoys all March long. Maybe even during other times of the year, too. What makes Irish Soda Bread different than most other breads? No yeast. Makes it a lot easier to bake, when you’re impatient like I am! I look forward to enjoying this treat each year, in moderation, as I’m moving towards healthier eating habits, which means all-organic foods. Until I find an all-oganic and healthier Irish Soda Bread recipe, the following six are my favorites.
Grandma’s Irish Soda Bread
Grandma knows what she’s doing in this one, because this one has a crusty crust, but is soft inside! You can leave the raisins out if they aren’t your thing, too. It says prep time is 10 minutes, however, it does take longer when you’re not a baker-type. Check out Grandma’s Irish Soda Bread on Sally’s Baking Addiction.
Irish Soda Bread from Epicurious
Now this one includes caraway seeds, so if you’re not into those, skip over this one. I’m sure if you don’t want to use them, you can skip them. However, I’m not sure how it alters the taste – as this one doesn’t require as much sugar. I’m sure there’s a science to this, hence the recipe creation aspect of it all. Check it out, and see what you think of Epicurious’s Irish Soda Bread recipe.
The Stay at Home Chef Irish Soda Bread
