“This is my family's traditional St. Patrick's Day bread. My grandmother has had this recipe for longer than I've been alive. I was SHOCKED to find out this wasn't real Irish Soda Bread, but instead more commonly known as Spotted Dog. Whatever you call it, it is unbeatable topped with a bit of butter.”

I tried this recipe after being disappointed with most Irish Soda Bread Recipes and was pleasantly surprised! The recipe was extremely easy! The bread is slightly dense but has an amazing flavor, especially buttered with real butter! I followed the recipes exactly; did not soak the raisins first, and it came out perfect - not dry at all. I did brush a little milk on the top before baking and butter after baking to create a softer, golden crust. I used my Kitchenaide to mix the batter quickly without over mixing. Baking time was approximately 50 minutes. I am impressed and will definitely use this recipe instead of the dry traditional recipes!

Very good. Sweeter than I expected. Will try it again with less sugar. I did use 2 cups of whole wheat flour to add some grains and it turned out really well.
