Irish Soda Bread


It’s called bread, but it tastes like a huge scone or biscuit. Great crust and really dense on the inside. The first time I made it and sliced it, my slices were way too thick for the density of the bread.

I make this bread at least once a month. It’s best on the first day you bake it; you can still eat it for a day or two afterward, but after that it gets hard and stale. Then again, if you pop it in the toaster, it might be just fine.

Someday I want to make little mini-breads (well, scones, I guess) out of this recipe. I’m just not so sure how the baking time would change.
