This recipe is simply delicious. I was asked to bake Irish Soda Bread for a family St. Patrick's dinner, and chose this recipe based on reviews and the fact that sour cream was one of the ingredients. When I started to mix it up, I realized that I didn't have any raisins, so I substituted dried cranberries. I used about 1 1/2 cups, which I thought was plenty. I also did not add the caraway seeds. I mixed the wet ingredients with the dry, using a spatula, in my KitchenAid stand mixer bowl. Then, using the mixer kneading hook, kneaded for only about 30 - 45 seconds. It was a very sticky dough. I just scraped it into my greased cast iron skillet and spread it out smooth. Before baking, I brushed on a little milk and sprinkled with sugar. It was done in exactly 65 minutes, and a beautiful golden brown. It is very moist, not at all dry and crumbly. Everyone loved it, and I was asked for the recipe. I'm going to make it again as soon as I buy some raisins.
