IRISH SODA BREAD

Irish Soda Bread has been a long-time favorite of our family.  I think I have been making it for  . . . we’ll not go there!  Anyway, this bread was especially fitting for our St. Patty’s Day themed cooking class but . . . it’s good any time!  Just remove the word “Irish” from it’s name and you have “Soda Bread”!  I’m only kidding!  Actually this bread stands on it’s own . . . regardless of it’s nationality!  Let’s do this!
