Irish Soda Bread
Nothing hits the spot quite like homemade bread straight out of the oven – right?
Although this bread is not gluten free, it is extremely easy to make and unlike it’s shop bought ‘cousins’, there are no hidden sugars or chemicals. Happy days!
Homemade bread makes a great house gift – perfect for the festive season when most of us would welcome a little hand in the kitchen!
