Recipe: Soda Bread

This is a quick bread recipe that really couldn’t be easier. It doesn’t have any rising time thanks to the baking soda but this also gives it a kind of heavy body which is best eaten day-of. I think the flavor leaves something to be desired (it’s nearly bland) but that might mean I try a few variations of this in the future because bread that you can have in under an hour is always good.
