Whiskey Irish Soda Bread
March 12, Posted by Stephanie Banyas. Did you know that authentic Irish Soda Bread has only four ingredients: flour, baking soda, salt and buttermilk? There is no sugar, eggs or butter, no currants no raisins or caraway seeds or dill, no cheddar or Gruyere cheese in traditional Irish soda bread those ingredients are strictly Irish-American additions. For research purposes, I decided to make a loaf of traditional soda bread and after eating barely a slice, I was thankful for the Irish American additions. Enough said. In America, we tend to eat soda bread once a year, on or around St. But why limit it to that?
Irene's Irish Soda Bread is the best that's out there. I dare Bobby Flay to make a better soda bread. Thems fighten words - but looking at your recipe, I can understand your confidence - I'll have to try. Wow, that's quite a showdown! This is great I love seeing the descriptions and pictures of the different kinds.
