I served this bread at last year's Christmas dinner and it was the topic of conversation at the table. Everyone loved it! Delicious with any meal or on its own.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 10 inch round cake pan.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, and fennel seed. In another bowl, stir together the eggs, buttermilk, and melted butter. Stir the wet ingredients into the flour mixture, until just blended using a large spoon. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Dot with the 3 tablespoons of chilled butter.
  3. Bake for about 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until puffed and golden. Cut into wedges and serve warm.

Wonderful! It's hard to believe it's a quick bread instead of a yeast bread. Versatile enough for almost any dish. I used nonfat buttermilk and I couldn't imagine how it could have tasted better.

I took this soda bread to a St Patrick's Day party - it got rave reviews, and several people asked for the recipe.

Very good bread. So sweet and moist. I served it with a German meal of dumplings and Sauerbraten for my Grandmother and other relatives and everyone raved about it.
