Irish American Soda Bread


Are you looking to celebrate this St. Patrick’s Day with traditional Irish or Irish American fare? Then, we have good news! Connecting to your Irish roots can be as simple as baking a loaf of bread. In the 1800s, few Irish farmers owned ovens, so they cooked bread over their fires using flour, salt, buttermilk, and baking soda.  As Irish immigrants relocated to America, they adapted the recipe by adding sugar, butter, egg, and fruit to create sweeter, richer bread – a perfect addition to your holiday meal.
