Last year, when I was looking for Irish soda bread recipes for St. Patrick’s Day, I found a gazillion online proclaiming to be “The Best Irish Soda Bread.”
For the most part, I wasn’t impressed. So many recipes were bland, dry and crumbly.
Before you yell at me, I understand traditional Irish soda bread is just that, and it doesn’t even have raisins in it. It’s meant to be eaten with stew, or carried in your pocket for a quick snack.
But try as I might, I just don’t like dry Irish soda bread.
