Yes the 'X' or cross was made to keep the evil spirits away, as well as help the bread rise correctly. It's an old Irish tradition. I've never put sugar or butter in my soda bread mix.

Isn't the "X" you cut into the top of the dough called a Cross? I'm guessing Irish folks would be pretty amused by calling it an "X."
