Irish soda bread! This bread is very delicious, quick and easy to prepare.
This traditional bread does not use yeast like other types of breads, instead it gets its texture and body from the chemical process of baking soda and buttermilk. Here we share with you this version of this delicious bread, I really like it spread with butter and jam; try it and celebrate Saint Patrick's Day with a traditional and delicious recipe.
WHO IS ST. PATRICK?
St. Patrick’s Day observes of the death of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. The holiday has evolved into a celebration of Irish culture with parades, special foods, music, dancing, drinking and a whole lot of green.
Today, people of all backgrounds celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, especially throughout the United States, Canada and Australia. Although North America is home to the largest productions, St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated around the world in locations far from Ireland, including Japan, Singapore and Russia. Popular St. Patrick’s Day recipes include Irish soda bread, corned beef and cabbage and champ. In the United States, people often wear green on St. Patrick’s Day.
