    The recipe KimSopia posted is the one I have been using for several years. It came from Dearborn Farms, our local farm market. I plan to make some tomorrow and I'll let you all now if it is still as good as I remember from last year's.

    Well I did make the bread, 2 of them but they didn't come out very well. I had the bright idea to sub half of the white flour with whole wheat flour which resulted in very dry bread - not the tasty treat it should have been. The dough was so dry that I needed to add a lot more milk. I also had the bright idea to make 2 batches at the same time and that created such a mess . I have just enough buttermilk to make one more bread so I may try again in a few days using the recipe as written without any bright ideas.

    Did you know the cross is cut in the top to let out the evil spirits?

    May, you can use either 1 tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice with enough milk to make one cup for a buttermilk substitute. I never use buttermilk for anything other than a ricotta pancake recipe I have so I use the substitute (with the lemon juice) instead of buying buttermilk that I won't use.

    Ah, That must be the answer as I was so frustrated with the mess I had made I forgot to cut a cross across the top of the bread.

    Ginny, Thanks for the good advice, will do it next time I need buttermilk.

    I tried your recipe for Irish Soda Bread a la Dearborn Farms. This is the first time I have made this type of bread and it was better than what I expected it to be. Because of diet issues, I did add only 1 Tablespoon of sugar but it was still pleasantly sweet and moist. It was a perfect ending to my corned beef and cabbage dinner. Thanks for sharing.

    Ahem, Miss May you have created a monster. My DH had never had Irish Soda Bread. May I tell you that he's hooked? I told him that if he really loved it as much as he said he did, then he would have to learn to make his own. Hopefully that will keep him from eating a whole loaf by himself at a sitting (well, not quite all by himself).
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    I didn't get my Irish Soda Bread done... I wanted to, but had baked a loaf of white bread on Friday and Fred decided we had enough bread. I gotta say I will make this bread. I love the whole idea of it and I do want to try it. Like a special quilt pattern..this is on MY LIST of recipes to try.
