I always thought Irish soda bread was very good, but just missing something. But missing what? Bailey's® Irish Cream!

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl; add softened butter and mix until evenly moistened.

  • Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Pour 1 cup buttermilk, egg, and 1/4 cup Irish cream liqueur into the well; add raisins to the buttermilk mixture. Knead mixture until raisins are spread throughout the dough. Form dough into a disk and cut an 'X' into the top of the dough; place onto prepared baking sheet and set aside.

  • Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir 1/4 cup buttermilk and 1/4 cup Irish cream liqueur into the melted butter until smooth; remove from heat and generously brush liquid over the dough.

  • Bake in preheated oven, brushing liquid onto loaf every 15 minutes, until no longer doughy in the center, about 45 minutes. Let bread cool on pan for 10 minutes before moving to a cooking rack to cool completely.

I tried this recipe because my family really love soda bread and adding Bailey's I figured could only make it even better. I was so right! The bread turns out moister than normal soda bread and everyone who's tried it has just loved it. I now make this every St. Patrick's Day and often when it's not St. Patrick's Day! The one thing I do differently from the recipe is that I substitute currants for the raisins. Read More

This bread came together amazingly quickly in my stand mixer and turned out perfectly!! My husband and I couldn't eat the entire loaf ourselves so I took some to a meeting where it received rave reviews. I'd definitely make this again! Read More
