Happy St. Patricks Day- Irish Soda Bread

Happy St Patricks Day

Happy St Patricks Day

I want to wish everyone a Happy St. Patricks Day. Β To celebrate the day I made a loaf of Traditional Irish Soda Bread, the recipe comes from Jessica@What Jessica Baked Next, this recipe is great by the way, very moist and delicious and excactly how I imagine a loaf of soda bread to be..

I think Irish Soda bread is the perfect way to celebrate this day, a shout out to my Irish friends and all those that celeberate this day and the beloved St. Patrick, the patron Saint of Ireland. I love Ireland, I want to go there it is #1 on my list of places I want to visit and I’m afraid that if I go I just might not come back. By all accounts it looks like heaven on earth, lush green land, friendly people, quaint and beautiful cottages, I could go on and on. So here is to Ireland and it’s wonderful people. A loaf of soda bread, served hot with some good butter, jam and a cup of strong tea.

Happy St Patricks Day

    Thanks very much for this, Suzanne ! Whilst I do have my favourite no-knead, no-nothing bread recipe that’s foolproof, I’ve wanted to try soda-bread for ages.
    Goodonyermate ! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you. I cannot knead bread at all, my hands cannot do it I have my trusty kitchen aid to do the work for me but luckily this lovely soda bread requires very very little in the way of work. It’s fantastic bread.
