TWD: Irish Soda Bread

This week's Tuesdays with Dorie was quite a surprise! Judging from the recipe, I was not super excited to make this - flour, salt, baking soda, and buttermilk? Doesn't sound too appealing... I decided to make this on St. Patrick's Day, and added in lots of golden raisins for some more flavor.
It worked so well! The bread had an amazing texture for how quick it was to make, and it ended up being quite sweet from all the raisins. I loved it! I am still toasting pieces in the morning for breakfast - I put it in the fridge and it did not turn "as hard as a stone" as Julia says.
I really recommend this one! Thanks to Carla of Chocolate Moosey and Cathleen of My Culinary Mission for hosting this week. The recipe can be found on their blogs.

I agree in that it was easy to make and came out flavorful.

This bread really is amazing when you consider both how simple it is and how good it is. I still prefer my yeast breads, but this one is much quicker.

It's amazing how a few simple ingredients can transform into something else, isn't it?
