    Really good.  -  14 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    DELICIOUS! I'm a long time yeast bread maker but new to "soda" breads and I was blown away by the taste and texture of Irish soda breads. I'll be remaking this; adding a touch of candied/dried citrus along with the raisins next time.  -  31 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
