We love Saint Patrick’s Day in our house. Not only because I’m part Irish, but also because of the delicious food, you get to eat! Do you guys celebrate this glorious holiday? Saint Patrick’s Day is such a fun and meaningful holiday. I even got Shamrock running shoes to celebrate this year!
BREAD DOESN’T HAVE TO BE INTIMIDATING
I know that bread recipes can be super intimidating to make but they certainly don’t have to be. I always suggest starting off with an easy bread recipe like Irish Soda Bread and then working your way up to something more complicated like Sourdough.
I’m going to be honest with you, I haven’t even conquered sourdough yet, but it’s one of my goals for this year.
I can make delicious dinner rolls and this easy Irish Soda Bread. Give my Irish Soda Bread recipe a try, you won’t be sorry.
STORAGE IS KEY TO KEEPING THIS BREAD FRESH AND DELICIOUS
Since this recipe uses fresh buttermilk, you want to make sure to store any leftovers in the fridge or freeze it. I suggest wrapping it in wax paper and storing the bread in a glass, airtight container. Don’t make the mistake I did of leaving it out overnight. The bread will spoil if you do that.
