Irish Soda Bread


soda bread1


I LOVE St. Patty’s day, and I’m only like 1/16 Irish, like the 1/16th Native American.
I am 1/4 Portuguese, but they don’t have St. Portuguese Day. No massa sovada here.

One day I’ll spoil you with the sweet bread recipe. It’s time consuming, but worth every delicious bite.

Yesterday I did make y’all some soda bread though.

And tomorrow is Corned Beef and Cabbage, direct from Whole Foods. YUM. I can’t wait.

I found this terrific recipe from Recipe Girl, and didn’t change a thing. She adapted hers from Bon Appetit, and switched out whole wheat flour for a portion, and added brown butter.

She adds currants, which are a tiny variety of raisin, and it adds the perfect bite of sweetness. Her honey butter is to die for as well, nice touch, and makes for a great breakfast treat.


Browning butter is one of those things you need to watch carefully, but once you get it down, it’s reaallllly good. Adds a nutty dimension to any of your recipes.

Here is her link to this recipe, it’s super easy y’all….. it’s worth giving a shot, comes together very quickly.

Makes two loaves too, so pass one along to your non-Irish friends. They’ll appreciate it.

~Peace, Love, and Shamrocks Y’all!
