Could also be called American Irish Whiskey Soda Bread, because of the addition of carroway seeds and raisins (or in this case, because I was feeling wild and daring, I used half currants and half golden raisins). The recipes I found for Irish Irish Soda Breads didn't have these extras. I'll post one of those recipes as well.
I tried out this recipe to accompany the Leek and Potato Soup I made the other night. It's pretty simple to make, it cooks quickly, and is pretty tasty. It's more like a biscuit than a bread in texture, and I think an improvement to the overall flavor would be to mix some of the the minced, sauteed onion into the dough in addition to scattering it on top. That's just my opinion.
Okay, here's what you'll need to do.
