You can't really call this Irish soda bread. Isn't the whole point to replace yeast with baking soda and an acid (buttermilk)to leaven the bread. If it must have yeast to be made in a bread machine I think I would just rather make it by hand... Read More

Easy to put together in bread machine. I baked it in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes in a greased loaf pan. Very good! Read More

Can't give it full stars because good bread it may be but it is not soda bread. Soda bread is supposed to be leavened only with baking soda that's why they call it soda bread!!! Read More

I made this to a tee. It rose a little too high and touched the lid of my machine but it did not collapse so I was still happy. It came out nicely on the fruit bread setting. It was good but remember it is only bread and it is not cinnamon raisin bread either. Read Allrecipes Bread Machine Basics. After using my machine for years I finally learned why my breads often rose too high. I use Bread Machine yeast. It is more activated than regular dry active yeast so it does not have to be dissolved in water first. I find I must always use less than the recipe says. I never heard of this traditional bread and I ve had corned beef and cabbage for St. Pat s Day for eons. It s just another new grocery marketing ploy I guess. I still gave it 5 stars if you like that sort of thing. I got sucked in this time but from now on I think I ll stick to plain old dinner rolls. Read More

This made a large loaf and there was none left after dinner. I used 3/4 cup of warmed milk and 3/4 cup of warm water rather than the dry milk powder. Melt the margarine or butter with the milk and add to the mixture. Read More
