Caraway Seed & Raisin Soda Bread

Updated: May 22, 2021

This is an easy and quick recipe to make. The original recipe calls for using corn oil. I didn't have corn oil on hand, so I opted to use vegetable oil. A wonderful tasty bread that can be served with cheese or warmed up and eaten with sweet butter.

Top soda bread is the caraway seed & raisin. Bottom soda bread is the dates with almonds
