Irish soda bread is simple to make: Since baking soda instead of yeast is the leavener, there’s no waiting for the dough to rise. Our 5-ingredient version of this quick bread is perfect served warm with a smear of jam or dunked into a savory soup or stew (Irish or otherwise.) Whip up a loaf of this classic rustic bread for St. Patrick’s Day. Don’t forget to mark it with the classic cross-hatch pattern before placing it in the oven –  it’s believed to ward off evil!
