"I've never made Irish Soda Bread before and wanted a recipe that only made a small amount...this recipe was perfect! My husband and I both enjoyed it with our St. Patty's Day meal and I will definitely make it again!"

"I have made this recipe twice. The first time I misread the amount of butter and did indeed put in 4 tablespoons. That was too much butter. The second time I made it according to the recipe and it was excellent. I plan on making this again for St Patrick's Day."
