doesn't taste a thing like irish soda bread, but it's really good and moist in any case!! would definitely make it again...and again...and again...
You can't really call this Irish soda bread. Isn't the whole point to replace yeast with baking soda and an acid (buttermilk)to leaven the bread. If it must have yeast to be made in a bread machine I think I would just rather make it by hand...
having eatan soda bread as a youngester in belfast, i found this bread lacking.
Easy to put together in bread machine.
I baked it in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes in a greased loaf pan.
Can't give it full stars because, good bread it may be, but it is not soda bread. Soda bread is supposed to be leavened only with baking soda, that's why they call it soda bread!!!
delicious, soft-type irish bread. will make it often!
A real tasty bread. My wife says "It sorta grows on you."
I made this to a tee. It rose a little too high and touched the lid of my machine but it did not collapse so I was still happy. It came out nicely on the fruit bread setting. It was good but remember it is only bread and it is not cinnamon raisin bread either. Read Allrecipes “Bread Machine Basics.” After using my machine for years I finally learned why my breads often rose too high. I use Bread Machine yeast. It is more “activated” than regular dry active yeast so it does not have to be dissolved in water first. I find I must always use less than the recipe says. I never heard of this “traditional” bread and I’ve had corned beef and cabbage for St. Pat’s Day for eons. It’s just another new grocery marketing ploy I guess. I still gave it 5 stars if you like that sort of thing. I got sucked in this time, but from now on I think I’ll stick to plain old dinner rolls.

This soda bread is dense and moist, thanks to the tangy addition of buttermilk.
