This dough (or should I say batter?) is way too wet. I had to add almost an extra cup of flour. The recipe says to pour dough onto a floured board and shape into a loaf. After chasing the batter around the board for five minutes while adding flour to give it body, I was finally able to "pick it up" and put it in the pan. I will try this recipe again but cut back on the buttermilk.



I found this recipe for irish soda bread to be very easy to prepare and very tasty. I added my own variation by using a combination of golden and dark rasins along with a very small amount of lemon rind. My whole family just loved it!



Very delicious, I used golden raisins and also added 1/4 cup of dried cranberries, which made it beautiful too. Nice texture and crunchy crust.
