Bakers out there?

Anyone making soda bread this week?

Do you prefer it plain or with additives?

I've never made it & don't plan to start this year, but I do like it with currants.

I'd like a single plum floating in perfume served in a man's hat.

I haven't made it for awhile, I always find it too dry. My mom makes it sometimes and she has always put raisins in it. I don't like raisins. I could deal with craisins though.
I'm waiting for hot cross buns!

Soda bread can be too dry, indeed. It doesn't keep. The stuff in the stores is like day old biscuits. I do have one recipe I would like to try that has butter in it. May have a little more moisture.

OKBYE, your craisins idea makes me think that dried cherries would be good, too. Since I have found the bags of dried cherries at Costco, I have been on the lookout for ways to keep me from eating them by the handful right out of the bag. I like a little grated orange rind, too. Hardly authentic but good anyway.

Yeah, cherries would be good. Anything to add a little flavor, lol. Who cares if it's authentic if you don't enjoy it. The Irish were famine cooks, they used whatever they had. If they had some more flavorful ingredients they would have used them.
I'm just not a dry bread fan. I can't do ciabatta either. I like it soft and fluffy. There are only a couple brands of sandwich bread I will buy. Total bread snob here. 8)
