Neither I nor hubs had ever tried Irish Soda Bread until now, nor have I ever made it. Now that we have, we differ in our opinions. I thought it heavy, with a dense crumb and flat taste, which didn't appeal to me. In addition, I noticed the recipe lacked salt. I meant to add some but forgot, and its absence was noticeable to me. I think it would have definitely heightened the flavor. Certainly no fault of the recipe, but I now know I'm not a huge fan of Irish Soda Bread, although it did make a pretty loaf. On the other hand, hubs said he didn't miss the salt, and loved the different texture of the bread. He also liked the slight tang and sweetness. He said Grandpa McAndrew had a darn fine recipe!
