St. Patty's day is fast approaching and we are all about the festive foods. This soda bread recipe is such a fun color and a great addition to any meal or snack. You can have your kiddos help make this recipe!
We prefer this bread with lots of butter and jelly. Is there a better way to eat homemade bread? Try it with different flavors of jelly, blackberry, raspberry, grape, strawberry, and so much more. The bread makes quite a large loaf, so feel free to share with others.
