Reviews for Irish Soda Muffins
"Very moist and tasty. I'm not sure If I did something wrong (I followed the directions exactly except for omitting the raisins), but the batter was more like biscuit dough, it was very thick. Otherwise, they were great and I will make them again."
"Yummy! Definitely increase the raisins."
"Holy Hannah! Just made these with blueberries...they are incredible...doubled the recipe..(which will use your whole egg). Exactly 15 minutes..my 4 yr old helped me and we had a nice bonding time..They are soooo easy and amazing."
"Absolutely delicious! More like a scone than a muffin; everyone loves them. I always make a double batch, yielding 12 muffins. I used vegetable oil and increased the amount of raisins. Only need 15 minutes to bake & removed them from pan immediately."
"This is a perfect recipe for a small family. We just love them! I find using egg beaters works best."
"My husband loved these. I made exactly as instructed the first time. the second time around I did change slightly. I used light olive oil instead of canola oi, light sour creaml and splenda instead of sugar. They turned out just as good. As my husband says "this is a keeper"."
"not a review, but a question. What is vanilla powder mentioned in previous review??"
"Best and miostest soda bread I have ever tasted. We have also added a dash of nutmeg and a 1/4 tsp of vanilla powder and increased raisins yo 3/4 cup."
