I found this recipe for irish soda bread to be very easy to prepare and very tasty. I added my own variation by using a combination of golden and dark rasins along with a very small amount of lemon rind. My whole family just loved it!

This dough (or should I say batter?) is way too wet. I had to add almost an extra cup of flour. The recipe says to pour dough onto a floured board and shape into a loaf. After chasing the batter around the board for five minutes while adding flour to give it body, I was finally able to "pick it up" and put it in the pan. I will try this recipe again but cut back on the buttermilk.

Very delicious, I used golden raisins and also added 1/4 cup of dried cranberries, which made it beautiful too. Nice texture and crunchy crust.

The bread was excellent. The hit of the dinner. Dense but not tough at all. Made without raisins or caraway and was still excelent. Also good dipped in coffee.

Too much wet stuff. No soda. It's soda bread. I changed baking powder for soda, used half the buttermilk and it was better.

I love this recipe. It is the best one I've tried. It's sweet and delicous. I've tried over recipes and they haven't tasted the same.

quick,easy and delicous. served at my resturant on ST. Patricks Day and customers loved it. Left overs made great french toast.

My recommendation is to skip the part about putting it onto the board. Scoop this right from bowl into the springform pan. It was delicious, moist, fast, and very easy.
