Irish Guinness Soda Bread

Is everyone getting ready for St. Patrick’s Day? I found this wonderful recipe that was adapted from Recipe TV. Now I will not claim it is authentic since there are US substitutions and I am sure there are “secrets” that the Irish have that are not shared! But this recipe is so easy to make and is delicious. You could serve it with Irish butter, honey, jams, or just enjoy as it is! After mixing the ingredients it is more like a batter than a bread dough. It can be baked in two loaf pans, a long narrow pan, or even round cake pans!

Preparations are underway for St. Patrick’s Day! A new mini scone maker, scones cookbook, and some English Double Devron Cream that I am interested in trying! I am interested in hearing what everyone serves their scones with. Clotted cream, jams, butter? Do you serve with a hot cup of tea? In the UK do you typically serve tea with scones or other types of breads?

Irish Shamrock Chewy Cut Out Cookies were one of my favorites since I adore a chewy cut out cookie! They were fun to make and decorate.

A nice Guinness Beef Stew with Parsnips and Turnips served with Cheddar Herb Dumplings was also yummy! This year I am trying a slightly different version of Guinness Beef Stew.

    1. Thanks! And it lasts quite a long time. The recipe made two loafs. I carefully wrapped them and after a week they were still fresh!
