Irish Soda Bread
Irish soda bread is a semi-sweet quick bread where baking soda is used as the leavening agent. The traditional ingredients include wheat flour, buttermilk, caraway seeds, currants and baking soda of course. Soda bread is made in various forms, but I think muffins are a fun and easy twist to enjoy this bread. These muffins turn out slightly crisp on the outside and sweet and tender on the inside. They’re so good served just slightly warmed with a little pat of butter. Delicious!
