Irish Soda Bread

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day and my family roots, here’s a recipe for Irish Soda Bread. This was my first stab at making this bread and it turned out great. My family loved it and I loved the fact that it was so easy. Traditional Irish Soda Bread recipes include raisins or currants. Since I’m not a raisin fan, I left them out of my bread but include if you’re a fan.

I had all the ingredients in my pantry and fridge with the exception of buttermilk, so I made my own by adding lemon juice to the 2% milk in my fridge. The directions for doing this are in the recipe below. I couldn’t find my regular loaf pan so I used three mini loaf pans. The result was a soft dense bread with a nice crust. We ate one loaf warm with real butter leaving us with 2 more loaves to freeze, keep in the fridge, or better yet–share with friends with an Irish blessing.
