So my I started my day with Irish Soda Bread. It is ridiculous the variety of recipes out there but here are a few that caught my attention.
This is the recipe I ended up using from the Santa Monica Mirror: Robert Ditty’s Irish Soda Bread Recipe
1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees
2) Sift together
• four cups white flour
• one teaspoon baking soda
• one teaspoon baking powder
• one teaspoon salt
• two tablespoons sugar
3) Add two cups of buttermilk
4) Currants, raisins or other dried fruit are optional (I used 1/3 cup currants)
5) Knead for two minutes on lightly floured board
6) Shape into a round loaf
7) Place on a well-buttered, eight-inch pie pan and cut a cross along the top.
8) Bake 35-40 minutes.
9) Enjoy warm with butter (Irish if you can find it).
I loved this one. Including the old newspaper clipping of the recipe gave it a great touch.
This is a great website. It gives information about traditional Irish Soda Bread that is just flour, baking soda, salt and buttermilk.
I would also like to try this recipe.
We had corned beef with cabbage and potatoes. Then corned beef harsh tomorrow for breakfast!
