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.

  1. A lovely looking soda bread! Mine stayed wrapped in plastic wrap for several days. I used it for toast when it was a bit stale, it still tasted great. Thanks for visiting me!

  2. Marvelous!!!! It must not have been a yeast bread where it needed to rise and fall several times. I bet it was yummy and the suggestions on keeping it I am sure it be still be yummy. I especially love my scones the day after when they are a little stale and dry. I then cut them in half and toast them, which makes the outside crunchy and the inside all fresh and yummy. Great!!!
    yum.my – adjective informal (of food) delicious : yummy Irish soda bread…highly attractive and desirable : I scooped up this yummy young man. I think I like the second use of the adjective. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I rarely buy buttermilk. If in a spur of the moment, I decide to make a recipe that requires it, I either dilute natural yogurt with water or I use milk+lemon juice. I like your idea with the craisins! Your bread looks yum!
