Cheddar Irish Soda Bread

Cheddar Irish Soda Bread: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

I have seen various posts for Irish Soda Bread over the years, but for some reason I never felt the need to check them out. Making this bread was never on my list of recipes to make. Then one day I was trying to decide what to have with a corned beef meal and I thought about this bread and decided to investigate it further.

I am so glad that I did because this bread is absolutely delicious. So delicious that I had a hard time waiting until the next nights dinner to be able to have another piece of it. In fact I actually two pieces of it the night I cooked it, that is just how good it is.
