If you just stopped by from A Grande Life, welcome to the next stop on the St. Patrick’s Day Blog Carnival! This is a Crock-Pot Irish Soda Bread recipe adapted from one I found on Heidi’s Recipes (not our Heidi!). I wanted to make something in the crock-pot and this is actually my first attempt at bread in the slow cooker! Usually I cheat and buy it at the store but from what I’ve read traditional Irish Soda Bread wasn’t made with raisins or caraway seeds and it also was typically made with unbleached flour making it more “brown” in appearance. I’ve been told it was also not made with butter but I can’t live without my little bit of butter. I actually really like it with raisins but wanted to go for something close to “authentic”.
This recipe got two thumbs up from not only my kids but my 5 year old nephew who was visiting. I had to fight them for a piece to try it myself! Serve it alone, with butter or with butter and jam (we used raspberry!). Grab the recipe below and feel free to add it to your recipe box by clicking on that little red button.
