I am so excited about this - I love soda bread and have never been able to find a good recipe. Yahoo!

Thank you sooooo much for doing one of my two foodwishes, Chef John!!! I've been waiting for it for a long time now and I wasn't expecting it anymore but hey! you're the best!

I can't wait for this one either.

I've eaten soda bread more as a hot food if that makes sense. I remember there was a snack bar in school that did them with butter and melted (?broiled?) cheese on top. They were one of the favourite items of an admittedly, eh, high in fat selection. In among the bacon, sausages and sausage rolls they were the healthy option. Delicious though.

I think I've also had them included in a cooked breakfast.

But should soda bread always be eaten in hot food dishes, Chef John? This is where there seems to be a contrast with wheaten bread. The latter seems - at least in Ireland - to be a cold food item. You can toast it but it seems to be eaten more with jam(jelly), cream cheese or honey.

I made this soda bread last night and it came out terrific. Great texture, not heavy and flavorful. A keeper! thanks!
