Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Usually I’d bake some kind of fun dessert but I ran across this recipe for Irish Soda Bread and decided to give it a try. Spoiler alert: this is the easiest bread recipe ever. Well, I take that back, these Cream Biscuits are also super easy.
Basically all you do is mix all of the dry ingredients together, then add the buttermilk and mix until it’s a rough dough. Knead it a few times and then pop it in the oven. Be sure to watch for the varying oven times and temperatures as that’s important.
The bread is quite dense and since there aren’t a ton of ingredients it isn’t super flavorful. It was really good with some Irish butter and leftover pot roast though! I think you can add spices, cheese, and other ingredients to Irish soda bread (this was just the basic version) so that would probably have been really good. I’d definitely try it again and probably add herbs next time!
