Irish White Soda Bread

To celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day, what better thing than to share some delicious foods from the Republic itself. Today, I’m telling you how Clare showed up on my doorstep a few weeks ago with a fresh-baked loaf of homemade Irish soda bread! It was adorned with sultanas and a gentle sweetness.


The neutrality of white soda bread makes it ideal for just about anything. I prefer it as toast with Irish butter and jam but also alongside a steamy bowl of hearty soup or sandwiching roast turkey and berry sauce. Really, what isn’t Irish soda bread good with?!?

No recipe posted today because Clare used Rachel Allen’s own recipe. But here are photos of the mouth-watering loaf Clare brought over.
