There is nothing better than homemade bread, but the thought of making it might be a little intimidating. Such is not the case for soda bread, which is made with baking soda and baking powder and therefore is more like a quick bread than a regular yeast bread. I have always been a fan of soda bread, but did not know the extent of how delicious it can be until I made it from scratch last year. I cut off a little piece to try when it was still warm and eventually found myself eating half the loaf. The same thing happened this year - I guess it's going to be an annual St. Patrick's Day tradition.
The recipe I use can be found here. The only thing I changed was I used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 1 cup all purpose flour.
Here is what it looks like before going into the oven:
And here is the final product. The crusty top is the best part!
