Yummy Irish Soda Bread

This is the most delicious soda bread I have ever tasted and it was EASY to make, too!


Michele, niece, and I and my Mom made a lot of food today. We made the cupcakes for Easter and froze them so all I have to do is put them together the day before Easter (Holy Saturday).

1 cup milk

Add milk and melted butter mixture into the dry ingredients
Mix together.

Form 2 round loaves as seen below... bake on a cookie sheet at 350 degrees for about an hour. Check it a lot so that it doesn’t burn. I think we overcooked one loaf.

There must be something wrong with Mom’s oven because the loaf on the left cooked quicker than the one on the right. Weird.

Isn’t this a beauty?

I put it on a pretty plate and took some pictures.
