Very good; I used chocolate chips instead raisin and also made my own buttermilk with milk and lemon juice, and it was so good!!
Just made this for the first time and it definitely will not be the last.. I will never buy Irish Soda Bread again... It was wonderful!!!
Terrible! The oven temp is too high so that at the end of the stated baking time the outside is lovely golden but the inside is still runny. Very dry and bland with a grainy texture. The picture shows about 3 times the raisins that the recipe calls for.
Very disappointing. I made it exactly as directed, but it came out burnt all around the outside and totally doughy in the center. My oven is fine for everything else, so I don't think that was the problem. The bread also oozed butter all over the pan while it baked. I would never make this again.
Our bread came out looking perfect but gooey on the inside, I had to put it in for an additional 10 minutes after slicing it for it to be done. When it came out, it was kind of a cross between a scone and heavy biscotti in texture. After reading about soda bread, we probably kneaded it too much ( I helped my 6 year old make this and she insisted on kneading). It was an interesting experience but I think maybe next time we'll try the Easy Soda Bread recipe.
