I didn't have all of the ingredients called for and went with some of the variations Phoebe very cleverly adds into her recipes (love that!). My recipe really didn't come out as a traditional Irish Soda Bread, but it did come out delicious (and much larger than I anticipated, since it took up almost my whole baking stone! Definitely worth saving this recipe, and I look forward to trying more variations next time.
