A tip for cooling your Irish Soda Bread. Wrap the bread in a clean t towel and stand on its thin edge resting against the wall on a diagonal. This is what my Irish Mum always does. That way it cools a little slower and the crust is crunchy but not too tough. If there is any left over it's yummy toasted lighly the next mornong with jam. I'm off to bake!!
YUMMY!! I am totally lovin' this recipe. I had tried a couple other soda bread recipes from this site and was really disappointed because they weren't anywhere CLOSE to what I was looking for. This one was!! It's not identical to my brother's recipe but it is SUPER close moist and dense with a wonderful hearty flavor. Would be fantastic with a hunk of cheese or a nice stew and is great with some real butter. My son loved this bread too. I halved the recipe and made one large loaf rounded and baked in a pie plate. I baked for 30 minutes at the recommended temperature then turned the heat off and let it sit in the oven another 10 minutes (it was already nicely browned but I wanted to make sure the middle cooked through too). Seems to have worked perfectly! The bread is just fantastic and easy to throw together. Thank you!:)
This crusty dense bread had a really good flavor. The loaves are nice to look at as well. I chose this recipe because it seemed to be the most authentic. The others are too "americanized". I wanted soda bread not a biscuit/currant loaf! It was also very very easy I have never made any kind of bread before and I was extremely gentle with it as suggested. The only thing I changed was I ground my oats for smoother texture. I made this on St. Patty's Day with lamb stew. The bread was really addictive with butter I couldn't stop eating it!
If you're a fan of whole grain breads you'll love this one. I made the bread as written to go with a beef stew except I halved the recipe and substituted a plain yogurt sour cream and milk mixture for the buttermilk as stated in another review. My bread baked to perfection in 30 minutes. I also made a tasty tea bread by using a 50-50 mix of white and whole wheat flour adding 1/2 cup of honey 2 tablespoons of butter 1 tablespoon of carraway seeds and 1 cup of raisins. Great both ways.
A good basic bread. The texture is moist and soft even though it is a dense bread. It has a very simple wheaty flavor that is good with blackberry jam. The second time around I added 2 tbsp honey and 2 tsp salt raisins and caraway seeds.
Finally! When I was in Ireland I lived almost exclusively on soup and brown bread I was addicted to it. When I got back to the 'States I tried to get a recipe or find it at restaurants only to be presented with a whitish bread with raisins or currants in it! WRONG! This is the real deal! Thank you for submitting it it is sooo easy and tastes great especially when dipped in soup!
