A staple in Irish homes, Irish soda bread is quick and easy. For feast days the Irish add fruit and spices to make this a special bread. This is an appropriate recipe for the Feast of St. Patrick or any other Irish Saint.

DIRECTIONS

Sift the flour and the dry ingredients into a bowl. Make a hole in the center and stir in the buttermilk. If too dry, add a little more milk. Make a rather stiff dough, divide into 2 loaves, and bake on a greased pan in a moderate oven at 350° F. for 45 minutes.
