Irish Soda Bread is just the right comfort food any time of year! Not just for spring St. Patrick’s Day holiday celebrations, enjoy it fresh out of the oven on cool, crisp fall days, or bake up a batch on a winter snowy morning! Easy to make in multiple batches, this traditional family favorite homemade bread recipe is made with Buttermilk to give it a rich taste and texture.
Saint Patricks Day Food
My husband’s family is Irish and my mother-in-law taught me how to make Irish Soda Bread from scratch. While there are many Irish soda bread
buttermilk recipes out there that can be made in a breadmaker, this one is so easy I prefer to knead it myself eat straight out of the oven! Since it makes three loaves, give one to family or friends! Serve it with your favorite Saint Patricks Day food or beverage of choice!
