Wonderful! It's hard to believe it's a quick bread instead of a yeast bread. Versatile enough for almost any dish. I used nonfat buttermilk and I couldn't imagine how it could have tasted better.
When I saw the fennel in this I was intrigued and decided to make half the recipe in an 8" cake pan. This baked up beautifully. The taste was good, the fennel was subtle and I liked it the first day. The second day the crust had lost some of it's crispness and wasn't nearly as good. To salvage it, I decided to toast it which did improve it somewhat. I doubt that I'll be making this one again, but it was fun to try.
I took this soda bread to a St Patrick's Day party - it got rave reviews, and several people asked for the recipe.
Very good bread. So sweet and moist. I served it with a German meal of dumplings and Sauerbraten for my Grandmother and other relatives and everyone raved about it.
Very good bread. Smoother crumb than I usually find in soda breads, so it's a nice change of pace. I think it got a little dry by the next day, so eat it right out of the oven for best results. Loved the sweetness.
Absolutely wonderful. More like a yeast bread than most quick breads I've made.
Seriously amazing, and seriously easy to make. I love the flavour of fennel - but even if you don't particularly like fennel, it's subtle and adds a nice punch to the bread. Almost everyone I've served this to has asked for the recipe!
Wonderful! Great with savory foods or as a breakfast treat.
