This is a really tasty mix, and I don't mean just for St. Patrick's Day. It's crumbly/tender, just sweet enough, and makes a beautiful presentation at the table. I like to serve it with room-temperature sweet cream butter, though a dab of orange marmalade is never amiss, either.

We use only simple, good ingredients—the sort we bake with every day in our kitchens. No artificial colors or flavors, no preservatives, and all non-GMO.

What you get

This easy King Arthur mix makes traditional Irish (or richer American-style) soda bread, studded with sweet little dried currants.

American Style Soda Bread

  • King Arthur Flour Irish Soda Bread Mix
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons caraway seeds, optional
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk or buttermilk

Preheat your oven to 375°F.

Grease a tall, round soufflé pan (about 7" x 3½" tall), or an 8" round cake pan, cast iron skillet, or Dutch oven.

Whisk together the mix, sugar, and caraway seeds, if using.

Cut in the butter, mixing until crumbly. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk, and add to dry ingredients, mixing just until moistened.

Loosely shape into a round ball and place in the prepared pan. The dough will be soft. Lightly sprinkle the top of the dough with flour, then use a knife to cut a cross into the top.

Bake 40 to 55 minutes (the longer time for the deeper pan), until crusty on top and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Remove from the oven, and cool in the pan for 15 minutes before turning it out of the pan onto a rack to cool completely. Let cool before slicing.

Yield: one loaf.
