Irish soda bread / vegan mofo 2009

It's always nice to have a little home-baked something to go along with soup. It makes the meal seem homier and more comforting. When I saw this quick bread on the Holy Cow blog, it looked like just the thing to whip up for our meal. I've always enjoyed the dense texture of Irish soda bread, and although the original recipe appeared to be lighter than the normal soda bread, I made a couple of changes that probably affected the texture. Vaishali used half whole wheat flour and I used all white whole wheat flour. She added cream of tarter, and I used her suggested substitute because I didn't have any. And I added raisins, just because I felt like it. You might want to try her original version - it looks really good!


  1. Oooh yeah! It looks GREAT! I'll be trying my hand at Bread making over the next couple of weeks.
    Happy Mofo'ing!

  2. I am happy to see you participating in Mofo! Yay for posts :-)


  3. That is a type of bread I have never tried! Definitely on my list now. Oh, and happy mofo'ing Andrea.

  4. Jeni,
    I love making bread. Now that my breadmaker bit the dust I'm forced to be more creative so I'll be watching your blog!

    One day so far but there are a LOT more to go!

    Quick breads are handy when you want bread at the last minute. Happy mofo-ing to you, too. I'm showing my husband your post to inspire him!

  5. I LOVE soda bread for breakfast--it's like a huge biscuit. This looks like a great version of it!

  6. That looks absolutely incredible!!

  7. Ricki,
    I'm picturing a giant plate filled with huge biscuits and gravy. :)

    Thanks! I think the texture of the original was a little more bread-like than the one I made.
