You don't have to be Irish to enjoy this Irish soda bread recipe
. It's sweeter than a traditional soda bread, but just as easy to make (more like a quick bread than a yeast bread in terms of time). Add currants or raisins to jazz it up, and serve it with one of my flavored butter recipes
, like cranberry butter or orange butter.
