Dessert & Baked Goods » Irish Soda Bread
Dermot Quinn of Greenhills Bakery in Dorchester, MA, shares his Granny Murphy's long-protected Irish Soda Bread recipe. Classified as a quick-bread, it is leavened with baking soda (hence the name), and gets its moisture from low-fat buttermilk. Dermot mixes in plump raisins, but also suggests caraway (although he notes the Irish don't prefer caraway seeds), or other dried fruits. This recipe makes 4 loaves, and bakes perfectly when placed directly in the oven from the freezer. Save a couple of loaves for a future lazy weekend brunch.
