An Irish meal wouldn't be complete without a lovely loaf of Irish Soda Bread. This recipe makes a beautiful high loaf of bread dotted with sweet raisins. It doesn't last long at our house this time of year. —Gloria Warczak, Cedarburg, Wisconsin

"This was a really tasty bread! My husband and I enjoyed it. Made just as the recipe said to and it turned out perfect. I will be adding this to our St Patrick's day menu."

"This is wonderfully easy and very yummy! I'm not a fan of caraway seeds so I always make this bread for St. Patrick's Day. I also don't like raisins in my bread and I've found that this tastes just perfect without them if there are others who want to go that route!"
