Soda Bread: So easy a monkey can do it

What do you do when you need bread for dinner and it’s 6:oo, and your husband doesn’t have his cell phone, so you can’t make him pick up a loaf on his way home?  Make this soda bread!


I made this last night for dinner, and it was delicious.  A nice crunchy exterior with a soft interior.  I had to make a few changes to the original recipe since my kitchen is pretty far from being well stocked at the moment.  I added some dried thyme to make the bread a bit savory.  If you leave out the thyme, this bread would be great plain with a spread of butter and some honey.  Raisins would make it a nice breakfast bread.
