Quick breads like banana and zucchini are easy, but Irish soda bread may be the easiest of them all. A traditional loaf requires just three ingredients: buttermilk, flour and baking soda. But most variations today include a bit of butter, some eggs, Sugar, and dried currants or raisins. We understand the need for most of these additions, except for one. WHO LIKES CURRANTS?
This St. Patrick's Day, and for all St. Patrick's Days moving forward, we'll be making this skillet Irish soda bread with mini chocolate chips. Even if you like dried fruit, you must admit that chocolate is way better. Baked in a skillet, the craggily crust gets extra crunchy and the bread inside stays nice and soft. Plus, it looks pretty dang cute and chic. (Don't fret if you don't have a cast iron - the recipe will still work nicely in a regular pan.)
Our other favorite part of this recipe is that you don't need a mixer. Just a good old-fashioned spoon and some arm muscle (not a lot, don't worry) will do. Whisk together your dry ingredients, mix your wet ingredients, then fold it all together before loading it into the pan. Since there's chocolate inside, we brushed the top with butter and sprinkled it with sugar. One slice (or wedge) tastes like a scone, only better. Serve it with good salty Irish butter if you know what's good for you.
