If you compare this to almost any other Irish Soda Bread recipe, the ratio of wet to dry ingredients is insanely off. If you make it as is, do so in a cake pan since it will turn out more like a quick bread/cake. I did ultimately get it to work out on my 3rd try with MAJOR adjustments. I took the baking soda and powder to 1.5 teaspoons, each. I also cut in 5 tablespoons of COLD butter, and reduced the buttermilk to 1.5 cups. I also reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup which made for nice flavor and browning but without the sweetness of the cake I was mentioning at first. This all made the dough more traditionally craggy and amazing with butter. In the end this was not a good recipe since it required so much amending.

The best Irish Soda Bread recipe! I made it several times. When I made it the first time, it became a family's favorite. I use 2 eggs instead of 1, and use 1 cup buttermilk, 1 cup crème fraiche and 1/2 heavy whipping cream for the liquid. I also reduce the sugar to 1/2 cup and the raisins to 1 cup. My family does not like it too sweet. This recipe is a keeper. Thank you for sharing, Colleen!
