Bake the Book: Irish Soda Bread with Raisins and Caraway

Sweets Emma Kobolakis Post a comment

It's a wonder why soda bread isn't made year-round. With sweet raisins and grassy caraway seeds (and plenty of butter), this couldn't-be-simpler bread will see you through cold winter nights. More

British Bites: Soda Bread with Port-Soaked Raisins

British Bites Sydney Oland 1 comment

If you're looking for a quick bread to go with your afternoon tea, or your morning fry up, look no further than the humble soda bread. Raisins or currants are an expected addition, but soaking the raisins in port before adding them to the dry ingredients gives them an extra boozy sweetness that really livens up this simple bread.

Bread Baking: Soda Bread with Dried Cranberries

Serious Eats dbcurrie 10 comments

This is an American-style soda bread. The original Irish soda bread didn't have raisins. Or cranberries. Some American-style Irish soda bread also includes caraway. This one doesn't, but if you like it, feel free to add two to four tablespoons of caraway along with the dry ingredients. More

Gluten-Free Tuesday: Soda Bread

Serious Eats Elizabeth Barbone 1 comment

Before we talk about what this recipe is, let's talk about what it's not. It's not a traditional Irish soda bread. Traditional Irish soda bread would be made from flour, baking soda, buttermilk, and salt. That's it. The recipe I'm sharing today is an Americanized version of Irish soda bead: it contains sugar, eggs, caraway seeds, and raisins. More

Cook the Book: Spotted Dog

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 9 comments

For our final recipe from Forgotten Skills of Cooking by Darina Allen I couldn't resist sharing this riff on an Irish Soda bread known as Spotted Dog. As far as I can tell, the whimsical name either refers to the spotting of raisins on the bread's surface, or it's a derivative of spotted dick, a steamed pudding dotted with currants. More

Irish Soda Bread with Nuts: Is That Allowed?

Serious Eats Lee Zalben 9 comments

Over the years I've come across nuts in many baked goods. Almond-studded croissants, pistachio-covered brioche, banana bread with pecans—so why not Irish soda bread? More

Healthy & Delicious: Whole-Wheat Irish Soda Bread

Serious Eats Kristen Swensson Sturt 20 comments

An amalgam of seven different European ethnicities, my siblings and I grew up without a real culinary heritage. If anything, Ma usually made dishes from outside our own hotpot of cultures: goulash, spaghetti and meatballs, etc. The one exception was Irish soda bread. This one is a little hardier than others—more of a quick brown bread than a dessert. More

Authenticity Versus Tastiness

Lia Bulaong 3 comments

Deb of Smitten Kitchen on blasphemous bread, after Melissa Clark's recent inauthentic Irish soda bread recipe in the NYT: I’ve never made Irish soda bread before and eaten it almost as rarely, so I can’t offer a review with any authority, but what I loved about this article is neither could Clark. She was told by a friend married to an Irishman and living in his country that though her version was rich and lovely, it neither looked nor tasted like the real deal. Apparently, nobody in Ireland serves real soda bread anymore, she said, and even if they did, it would have no raisins, eggs, butter or caraway seeds. After trying a version faithful to the original and finding... More
