Easy Irish Soda Bread- Picture Recipe Included

This magical Irish Soda Bread recipe contains only 6 ingredients and has only 5 steps as seen below.

Important tip: Do not work the dough too much in step #4. Knead only 5 times! That’s the magic number. The baking soda is what causes the bread to rise.
