Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Irish Soda Bread You don't need the luck of the Irish to bake this delicious bread. Prepared with the milk of your choice(I used buttermilk) - yum! We could hardly wait for the bread to cool before we demolished the loaf!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Family Favoriter Closest I've come to my mother's recipe. We make it in a pie plate and take about 10 minutes off the baking time. I'm now expected to bring this to our family brunch on Christmas Eve morning. All the Irish cousins love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No fuss Irish Bread 4 ingredients! Buttermilk or milk of your choice, raisins, a package of Bountiful Beer Bread Mix, and butter! Then Bake! No brainer and no mess. This bread is delicious and moist. Plump raisins to add just the right amount of sweetness. Mmmmm...... cut thick slices to toast for breakfast on the go!
