TWD: Irish Soda Bread

fSince the recipe said this was not going to be a bread to keep very long, I thought it would make a perfect rainy day kid activity.

My little baking assistants vetoed any raisins, currents or any other dried fruit.  They did decide on some food coloring to make it more festive ;)

It doesn't get much easier than this, throw all the ingredients in the bowl, mix, shape and bake!  Not sure why one loaf rose more than the other, maybe because I helped my son measure his flour and let my daughter fly solo?  It was nice with a little butter and strawberry jam, but it did turn to stone quite quickly.

This weeks Tuesday's with Dorie recipe was selected by Cathy at My Culinary Mission and Carla at Chocolate Moosey.


  1. This is a great recipe for kids to take a crack at baking! The green food coloring is a nice touch. : )

  2. Both of your loaves look so pretty! Such a wonderful activity with the kids…looks like they’re having a great time. I kept my bread for several days wrapped in plastic wrap and in a zip lock bag…never really got hard!

  3. This is a fun projects for the little ones :-)
    The green is very festive.

  4. The food coloring is an excellent idea. Your loaves look lovely.

  5. What cute little helpers! I like that you gave it a little bit of green. Your loaves are so pretty.
