Irish Soda Bread

You can tell when I have nothing to say: I upload a picture of FOOD. Leave it to the New York Times to come up with yummy things to try. Irish Soda Bread, which I have always wanted to make because it is not too sweet. I saved this recipe from Thursday's Times: cut the sugar in half, used whole wheat flour, and didn't have caraway seeds so I used dill seeds. Haven't tasted it yet, but what could be bad? Ok - I did quilt a piece today, which now needs to have the edges finished. The baking was just a little break from all that sewing. Back to the quilt. Or maybe a cup of tea and a piece of you-know-what. I'll let you know whether it's worth making.

Taste test: too sweet for me, even with half the sugar, and the consistency of cake. Well, my husband likes it - but it isn't Irish Soda Bread. Anybody out there have a good recipe?

Hey Rayna!
I used to have a great recipe for Irish Soda Bread, but that was twenty some odd years and many homes ago, so I'm afraid it's lost. Besides I love my sugar, so I think it would be waaay too sweet for you!
Sorry about your snow, but glad you got your ls back.

Well I'm sorry it's too sweet for you, because I wanted to make a silly comment, like at least you won't be a starving artist!
