Cooking For Tuesdays

Just a little of what I like to cook.

TWD irish soda bread

on March 20, 2012


so, here it is, another st paddy’s day. and new roommates, so a house full of boys. so, after a long night last night, and an early morning taking my hubby to work, i was very glad this recipe was short, sweet and to the point.


not much to it here. got the dry ingredients together. i realized at the last minute i had no buttermilk, but, 1 TBS lemon juice per cup worked well.


i added green food coloring to my bread. put a few drops in the milk and then mixed it all together. i wish i had a pic of my hands! they were a mess.


in the dish, ready to cook. the bread looks like the grass outside, fresh, green and springtime.


in the oven. this was after 20 minutes. i guess, since the oven was on 200 all day cooking some corned beef, it didn’t take long to cook.


on the rack drying. still green. i didn’t know how the green would turn out as it baked, but it looked and smelt great.



and everything met the approval of the little one. that’s all i care about!

for the recipe, you can go here: or here: . and, if you want to see every one else’s bread, go here and look for the lyl post:

so, i hope everyone had a great st paddy’s day!
