Irish Soda Bread
For background about this easy bread, read the Society for the Preservation of Irish Soda Bread story: http://www.sodabread.info/
This bread really is easy to make and tastes good with soups, stews or salads. Actually, during the summer it goes nicely with a dinner salad because it tends to be a bit heavier, almost like a scone or a home-made biscuit, rather than being light with air pockets like a yeast bread. I have tried the white bread version on several different occasions and it turns out nicely every time. Toasted leftover soda bread is awesome.
Worth noting: if you buy the small carton of butter milk for this recipe it will have 16 ounces where the recipe calls for 14 ounces. I wasn't paying close attention and added the whole carton thinking it was the perfect amount, the bread didn't turn out super good that time!
