Irish Soda Bread Recipe

Irish Soda Bread was first created in the 1830s, almost 200 years ago! This was when the first version of baking soda was introduced. With Ireland under financial strain, there was a lack of access to ingredients. Irish Soda Bread was a great way to create tasty bread with only basic and inexpensive ingredients. It's the texture that makes Irish Soda Bread really stand out. It's the result of the recipe's unique mix of milk and baking soda.

Fun fact: Families traditionally marked a cross at the top because they believed it would chase away evil and protect the household! Now, what do you say we whip up this quick and tasty bread?
