My mum bugged grandpa for this recipe but he told her he didn't have one. So, when he made the bread one day she captured each ingredient in a bowl and measured it and put it in the bowl he planned to mix it in!
This is actually irish bannock bread which is basically soda with raisins and sultanas. - 15 Jun 2011
Thank you for this - Since finding this recipe I have made it at least a dozen times. I have added fennel seeds it's lovely when fresh and when it a few days old tastes great toasted! - 12 Feb 2012
Not the soda bread I know and love, which is savoury, but very nice in a fruit scone sort of way. This would go well with jam and it is dead easy to make. But I've got to be honest I was drawn to making it as I was searching for a soda bread recipe, and my surname's McAndrew..... so it had to be tried. - 13 Feb 2010
