The food that get's served, that's a whole other matter....
Everybody says "Oh are you making soda bread and corned beef/cabbage today?"
Well at least ONE of those is Irish....LOL
Did you know that they have printed recipes from Ireland for soda bread way back in 1836?
And do you know what ONLY is supposed to be in soda bread?
Flour, Salt, Baking Soda, Buttermilk.
HUH. Did you know that?
If you add anything else, then you're making Cake!
SO in providing an accurate recipe- here's one from Irish Central, which is pretty much the same as my grandmother's recipe!
