Is Irish soda bread supposed just be a giant biscuit?

  1. I wonder if in our modern age we have too high expectations for our breads and add a ton of ingredients to them. The soda bread came from an earlier time when bread was just something that was filling and could be used to dip into soups and stews. Or be spread with butter or jam or eaten with a chunk of cheese and, if you were lucky, a hunk of sausage. They didn’t necessarily have to stand on their own.

    I don’t make it often but here’s my first post (I used half all purpose and half whole wheat flour and some rolled oats) for a very hearty version of this classic bread.
