Several years ago when I realized how easy Irish Soda Bread is to make, I decided to include it with our traditional St. Patrick’s Day Corned Beef and Cabbage meal. No rising, very little kneading, and a bread made in one mixing bowl! Seemed easy enough to me and something I could get done during my busy day. Of course it was easy because I used an Ina Garten recipe. Ina is my favorite chef and my go-to when I want to try something new. Now I bake this bread from time to time and don’t just save it for the Irish holiday.
We like this slightly sweet and classic quick bread fresh out of the oven, and if you have any leftovers, toasted with butter for breakfast the next morning is delicious! Enjoy!
