This Irish soda bread recipe is such an easy and fun baking recipe. Because you're using baking powder and baking soda instead of yeast - there is no fear that the bread won't rise - so it's a great beginner bread recipe! We recommend eating this still warm with soup or stew, or even just butter and jam - yummy!!
