Irish Soda Bread
Hello Yankee readers! My name is Jen and I’ll be bringing you fresh Yankee recipes every couple weeks here on Cooking New England. I’m a Midwestern girl who transplanted to Boston in 2007 with my Hubby and our two fat cats. I work a full time desk job as an engineer and have found a great way to relieve the stress of my 9-5 job by trying new recipes in the kitchen.
Jen PerezFor my first post, I decided to choose a festive recipe. Saint Patrick’s Day is coming up in a couple days and I wanted to try my hand at some Irish Soda Bread. Believe it or not, I’ve actually never had Irish Soda Bread before. Now that I’ve made it, I can see why it’s so popular. I wish people made it more frequently than just the weeks leading up to St Patrick’s Day!
Jen PerezThe dough for this bread comes together quickly and easily. The carraway seeds provide a subtle herbal sweetness unique to Irish Soda Bread while the golden raisins provide a hint of fruitiness. I highly recommend eating this bread while it’s still warm, fresh from the oven, slathered with butter, and possibly some jam.
