If you’re getting ready to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day consider making this Irish Soda Bread recipe. It’s become a tradition every year to have with family and easier to make than you think. Some people put raisins in their Irish Soda Bread but my family and I prefer without them.

What does Irish Soda Bread tastes like?

It is similar to the taste of a biscuit and surprisingly not made with actual soda, only baking soda. It is not to be eaten alone and should have butter, cheese or jam put on it. 

Can you freeze Irish Soda Bread? 

Yes, you can! It actually freezes really well. To freeze make sure the bread is cool and put in a freezer bag. Store in the freezer for up to 3 months. To reheat put on a baking sheet and bake in the oven at 325 degrees for about 10-15 minutes.

Having a St. Patrick’s Day celebration? I have some more delicious treats you can make for your party such as Rainbow Bag Treats, Pot of Gold Cupcakes, Irish Jello Shooters, Pot of Gold Oreo Truffles and Shamrock Gum Drops
