It was really easy to mix up the ingredients and stick it right in the oven. It was even easier since my Mom came and helped cut up the dried cherries! Here are just a few pictures of us getting everything together and yes that is buttermilk in my hand. My Mom helped as much as she could, look how happy she was so to get me a pie dish to cook the bread on!
Below is the bread before and after is was cooked! The recipe said to let the bread cool before eating, but it didn't last that long! I think the cherries made the bread delicious.
Making the Irish Soda Bread was pretty much the only thing we did this weekend to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. I am not even sure I wore green on Saturday. And I didn't even wear my green barrettes that I have kept just to wear on St. Patty's Day. Oh well... I am sure we will write another blog soon about what we did with our weekend!
