Week 16: Emigrant’s Soda Bread

U.S.: This is how the Irish emigrants to America made soda bread, since there were more ingredients readily available. See the Irish Soda Bread recipe, using all white flour, and then add

1 Tbsp sugar, 3 Tbsp caraway seeds, 1 cup golden raisins, 1 cup candied citrus. I baked two loaves, with a cut down the middle.
