Wonderful! I considered using other recipes but decided on this one because I didn't have buttermilk, which seems to be used in most recipes. This is moist and dense and has a lovely texture. I ...

An interesting version of Irish soda bread, but too cake-like for my taste and with far too many raisins. One cup would be about right, I think.

Fantastic tasting recipe! I have made the same Irish Soda Bread for years. I couldn't find the recipe this year and tried this one. I love it. I like the cake-like texture! A Keeper

Not really Irish Soda Bread but very good and easy. I used low fat sour cream and it came out just great.

Best irish bread, added caraway seeds for real irish flavor. Easy to put together.

This looks good but I have one question: Do you really make this Irish Soda Bread with no milk at all?

This bread was extremely easy to make. It's sweeter and runnier than normal soda bread so I had to make it in a loaf pan. Good for breakfast or a snack.

This was the 1st time I made Irish Soda Bread & I loved it. I took the loaves to work & everyone who had a piece asked for the recipe. I also added caraway seeds. Fantastic
