TWD/BWJ: Irish Soda Bread

As I mentioned before I lived in Ireland during my first two years of college. The first bread I ever baked was there and it was, obviosuly, Irish soda bread.


My friend Katha gave me the recipe and I've used it lots of times. It's a bit different than Baking with Julia's recipe, basically because it's sweeter and it has yogurt instead of milk but both are delicious!


I love the simplicity of Irish soda bread and how it's almost impossible to get it wrong. The best way to eat it is toasted with some oil or butter on top. JUST.SO.GOOD!


Oh and I also made a small version of the bread!


Again, I'm sorry for the quality of the pictures, I'll have my camera back soon!!

You can see the recipe in this month's hosts: Cathy of MyCulinaryMission and Carla of Chocolate Moosey

  7. Love the maxi and mini loaf. Both look delicious. If you spent a couple of years in Ireland, it DOES make you a "little bit Irish". You obviously have the touch. Nice work. Mary Hirsch

  34. Great looking bread! I like the way so sliced the whole loaf so nicely and layed them out. The crumb of the bread looks super, and it does have a pretty yellow color to it in the picture. You are lucky to get to live in several different countries. I'd love to have that experience!
