Before I made the Herbed Cheddar Soda Bread recipe from Chatelaine magazine, I wanted to make this one after seeing Ina bake it on her show a number of times of course, I always watch her reruns!. I'm just thrilled with the results and, for once, I didn't tweak *anything* about this recipe!
The recipe is in Ina's "Barefoot Contessa at Home" cookbook and here's the link to her site. If it disappears at the end of the spring when Ina changes the recipes, drop me a line and I'll send you the ingredients:
Ina's Irish Soda Bread
I know I enjoyed it so much because it's flavoured with my favourite citrus, orange, and the end result isn't heavy as you might expect from a soda bread. The house smelled wonderful while it baked and I enjoyed two slices with my raspberry orange jam that I made on Canada Day last year. Then I took the dog for a walk to work it off. ;)
