Bread and coffee - St. Patrick's Day in America

I present for your virtual delectation the loaf of Irish soda bread I just took out of the oven:

Flour, salt, soda & buttermilk. As it should be.

Here's a great piece about Irish soda bread, and why the sugary, raisin-bedewed confection you usually see here in the US isn't much like the way it is traditionally made.

Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone.

  1. I LOVE soda bread. I'm actually a huge fan of Brown Soda Bread. Had the real McCoy in Ireland and got a good recipe for it. If you want ADDED yum, rub bacon grease on the top of the loaf before baking.

  2. I've never heard of this kind of soda bread. I make the real deal all the time, but I might give this one a go today.

    Happy St. Paddy's Day.
