Irish Soda Bread ~ Today’s BAKING with JULIA experience

How do you spell “Irish Soda Bread”? P R O C R A S T I N A T E. Finally, it’s 7:50 p.m. and my Irish Soda Bread is in the oven. I procrastinated and waited until 6:00 p.m. tonight to make a special trip to the store for Buttermilk, while shopping decided to pick up some Craisins to add to the dough. Having never tasted Irish Soda Bread, I’m having a hard time imagining what the flavor will be like. What an simplistically easy bread to make. Now, the fact that the bread can only be kept for a few hours and that if not eaten by the end of the day it will be as ‘hard as the Blarney Stone’ means we’ll be up until midnight eating bread.
