How Did You Like this Recipe for Irish Soda Bread?
**Fun Facts! - Irish Soda Bread began popping up in the mid-19th century when baking soda first became available for use as a raising agent.
Easier and cheaper than traditional yeast. Also, traditional recipes call for buttermilk. However, in some recipes, the buttermilk is replaced by live yogurt (as I did here) or even stout. Which is on my to-do list!
