Best Irish Soda Bread
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 30 min.
Makes2 loaves (8 slices each)
I feel recipe needs more of a wet ingredient. Too dry, crumbly, hard to knead together. Tried really hard not to overwork the dough but couldn't get a ball formed properly...not enough moisture. I added a wee bit more buttermilk. It helped. The final product was ok, not as tender as I hoped.
Just made this and it is delicious! I thought I had followed the recipe exactly, but after pulling these beautiful loaves out of the oven, I realized I had totally forgotten the butter. And it still looks and tastes great, so now I can have twice as much. :-)
My family gave this recipe rave reviews. We all agreed it was much moister and rich compared to the Irish soda breads I had purchased from the grocery store. I followed the recipe as it was written, but it did not look like the picture. It ended up having deep crevices on top of the loaves. It took a little longer than I had hoped to completely moisten the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. So I was wondering if that might have caused the cracks. I would appreciate any suggestions as we will be making this bread again and again!
Best ever recipe it has just a taste of caraway seeds which give it that extra flavor. It's also very moist!
