This recipe for Irish soda bread has been passed down from generation to generation with direct roots from Ireland. Without the use of yeast and low in saturated fat, soda bread is ideal for the health-conscious! Light and flaky, this bread is best eaten warm and fresh out of the oven. Slather some salted butter and favorite fruit jam and savor the raisin-infused, biscuit-tasting bread for a hearty breakfast or snack time treat.
