Irish Soda Bread
Irish Soda Bread, what’s not to love? Interestingly this is not a recipe that we ate regularly in my childhood. Mam has her own, rather special version that I will share with you in the future with her permission. This recipe though is very close to that which I learnt to bake in school.
Irish Brown Soda Scones
In our house we bake these Irish brown soda scones on Christmas Eve because we drape them with smoked salmon on Christmas Day.
Last Saturday morning we dragged ourselves out of bed along with the kids and into the car at 2.30am. This time is normally reserved for night-feeds (with which I’m all too familiar) and journeys to the Airport to catch a flight (that hasn’t happened in years). However on that morning we were joining thousands of other walkers and runners at the Phoenix Park in Dublin to walk 5km from darkness into light in order to raise funds and awareness for Pieta House. In fact the 5km wasn’t restricted to just Dublin and there were other locations all across Ireland where people came together to mark the occasion.
