I was a bit uncertain about this recipe even while it was baking. I had never baked a bread on the stove top. Well I followed the recipe exactly. I did need to add a lot of flour to the surface. The dough was a bit too moist for kneading. However it turned out really well and it was very easy to make. It's definitely a classic. Variations in the future may include currants or maybe some whole grain alternatives.
Wonderful flavor and texture for such a simple recipe. I've tried several Irish soda bread recipes and this has trumped them all. I did not have actual buttermilk so I used the old milk with vinegar trick. I always feel like I'm cheating when I do that. laugh One note: I followed the instructions to add some flour to the cast iron griddle. I found this not only unnecessary but rather unpleasant. The flour burns which is unsightly and doesn't taste very good. After the first batch I wiped my pan clean wiped it lightly with oil and much preferred those results. My pan is seasoned enough that it's probably fine without doing any of that so I will skip it altogether in the future. Great recipe!
This is very delicious. I made no changes and would make exactly the same again which i plan to do very soon. Everyone in my family liked it also. I liked the fact that it was very moist although I covered it while it was still warm to make sure that it stayed moist and also softened the crust somewhat since that was what I was looking for that particular day... This bread would be wonderful toasted for breakfast with jam but ours did not make it long enough for that!
This is very simple to make. It's a fine bread maybe something to go good with a soup or something like that. I just found it very plain. I used some honey butter and that was a good addition but on its own I found it rather bland.
