Irish Soda Bread

Today we decided to try our hand at making Irish Soda Bread at home. The weird thing about Irish Soda Bread: it's pretty much made of very simple ingredients. The technique isn't that hard. Yet, not all of them will turn out. It's like you need the special touch. The secret ingredient. The something-something that makes it taste awesome. Without that, it's pretty much just a big huge lump of "OK".
We used Ina Garten's recipe today. Flour, buttermilk, currants, orange zest, and of course baking soda. No caraway (because we don't really care for the breads that have it). The dough was VERY easy to work with. Like a dream. It took about an hour at 400F. The end result was a crusty outside, with a moist inside. Kids loved it! Pretty tasty, but was lacking that special something...Till next time...
