Irish Soda Bread

I love Irish Soda Bread any time of year, although come spring, I always make some for St. Patrick's day(and neglect to write about it in a timely fashion):

Soda Bread is leavened chemically, and American style has raisins and fennel or caraway seeds. This particular version called for fennel:

I used yogurt for some tang as the liquid once I mixed my dry ingredients:

The thick batter that resulted made a chewy, tasty bread:


  1. I've always wondered why I've seen different versions of Irish Soda Bread -- with raisins and without. Didn't realize there was an American version!

  2. Oh yes - Americans love sweet baked goods! I have had some that are almost like cake.
