It's almost St. Patrick's day and I have been in the mood to cook the part. You know, Corned Beef and Cabbage, Irish Stew.....making Shamrock Shakes for my boys. I've never made Irish Soda Bread before and so glad that I did. I opted for a non-traditional bread, adapting this recipe from Barefoot Contessa's recipes for Irish Soda Bread. While it isn't traditional Irish Soda Bread, which has only flour, soda, salt and buttermilk, it is great bread! I didn't have any currants, couldn't find any and my boys ate all the raisins so I used what I had ... dried fruit bits and they made the bread wonderful! Enjoy!
