Easy Family Recipes: Savory Irish Cheese Soda Bread

Even if you don’t have a single drop of Irish blood in your ancestry, you’re most likely going to want feel a little Irish on St. Paddy’s Day. It isn’t necessary to try to feed the kids corned beef and cabbage when you can whip up this cheesy version of Irish soda bread. Instead of the traditional recipe using raisins, this year we’re making an easy savory version loaded with cheddar. As a quick bread, there’s no kneading or waiting for the dough to rise. The baking powder and baking soda work together with the buttermilk to give the dough a bit of lift. Just be sure that once you’ve combined the dry and wet ingredients, you get your dough into the pan and then the oven in fairly short order. Once the reaction starts, it’s time to get cooking! You can also cut the baking time by making soda bread muffins instead of a full loaf. The next morning, just warm, slice in half and use them for an egg sandwich. Delicious!
