Our friend Skip paid a visit to the cottage and made two varieties of Irish soda bread for us. One uses white flour and includes sweet golden raisins, the other is made with stone-ground whole wheat flour and includes caraway seeds. I was surprised by the simple preparation, and both loaves were incredibly tasty and textured! Skip even brought Irish butter to go with the bread – it made for a special celebration as we closed out another season at the cottage with a pot roast dinner for eight out on the deck – and barely a slice of this bread was left!!
