A Change From the Usual Cupcake Stuff
So no cupcake recipes today but I am posting the recipe for THE BEST Irish Soda Bread. It comes from a friend named Joan who outdoes herself every year baking Irish Soda Bread for friends. This year I heard she is asking people to donate to Relay for Life which I will gladly do. Also this year I think she must of hit an all time record with 80 loaves! She was nice enough to share the recipe so I just made some for the family tonight and then a friend called and said Joan was sending a loaf my way! I can hardly wait for that one. I did make a change to the recipe. Instead of regualr buttermilk, I used low fat buttermilk. I did not really taste a difference but the other piece of advice is not to knead it for too long or it will get tough. Left out the carraway seeds (not a fan) but used loads of raisins. As it's late and I'm tired I will post the recipe tomorrow but wanted to get a picture up of my Irish Soda Bread. Delicious!
