Irish Soda Bread~

In the last post I said I was going to make Irish Soda Bread~after finding out from "sis" we had Irish blood !!! I must say it tastes like "Beer Bread" to me.  It has the same texture except the crust is crunchier!!

I made one loaf and added the wrong amount of baking powder ~ugh!!! So I made another ~correctly!!!
Both were yummy so I guess it doesn't matter about the baking powder amounts :)!!! My friend Dee talks about this bread all the time and makes eight loaves at one time. She is really IRISH!!!!

Hope she will pop on here and tell me if they look like hers!! This is the recipe I used ~ Irish Soda Bread
I'm also giving you the Beer Bread recipe~super easy:
3 cups self-rising flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 (12~ ounce) can of beer
Pre-heat oven to 375*F~lightly grease loaf pan~mix all three ingredients~ Pour in pan and bake  for 1 hour.
You can add herbs or shredded cheese or for sweet bread , raisins or cinnamon.  Enjoy!!!  See ya Tuesday for Try it Tuesday!!!!
