"This is the most simple Irish Soda Bread recipe I've ever used. I learned it from an old Irish gentleman years ago, and it's been my favorite ever since. You can make it simply, and without the cheese, or add the cheese. With or without it, this recipe is great served with soups!"

  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Beat eggs in a bowl and set aside. Place the Parmesan cheese into a shallow bowl.
  2. In a bowl, mix the flour, salt, and baking soda until well combined. Add in milk, several tablespoons at a time, until the mixture forms a soft dough. Turn the dough out onto a well-floured work surface, and knead several times until the dough comes together.
  3. Roll the dough out into a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick, and cut into 2x3-inch squares. Brush each square with beaten egg, and dip the top of the square into the Parmesan cheese. Place the squares onto the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the squares are lightly browned, about 10 minutes.

Very simple and delicious! Big hit with my Irish husband :)

The word 'basic' in the title of this recipe started wheels turning in my head. The following is where I went with this wonderful bread: First, I increased the recipe by 50%, then 1) In the doug...
