Irish Soda Bread


I am sorry that I am late with these recipes.  I baked 4 soda breads to see what would work.  I started last night but didn’t get it until later this afternoon.  Anyway, if you like these, you can use them for next year.  You can also shape them into individual sized servings and serve them on a weekend as sweet biscuits any time of the year.

We had company tonight for dinner and I asked everyone to take a taste test.  It seems that the recipe with the sour cream was more favored.  However, they liked the whole wheat ones as well, so both might be worth trying.

Enjoy and Happy baking…
