I’m about to reveal something pretty controversial, so hold on to your seat belts.
…I think raisins RUIN perfectly good soda bread.
It’s true. I like my crumbly, dense, delicious soda bread to be savory and buttery and definitely not filled with little sugar-bombs of wrinkly, dried grapes. Alas, every option I’ve seen at the grocery store thus far has been chock full of those little guys, so this year I decided to make my own. For good measure, I loaded it up with aged Irish cheese and a hefty hand of herbs. (Yes, it’s as tasty as it sounds.)
Guys, meet Dubliner-Dill Skillet Irish Soda Bread.
