This recipe for Walnut Raspberry Irish Soda Bread has been changed and updated since a version first appeared in my post on Food Network a few years ago. I changed up the flour, swapped in honey for the sugar, and added more Mediterranean ingredients including yogurt. Plus, don’t miss the fun St. Patrick’s Day Healthy Kitchen Hack below!
Here’s hoping you get to eat a big slice of Irish Soda Bread slathered in butter on St. Patrick’s Day. Or even better, that you get a chance to bake up this loaf!
This Walnut Raspberry Irish Soda Bread is as easy as whipping up muffin batter: Toss together few dry ingredients (whole wheat flour, baking soda, etc) and a few wet ones (yogurt) and you’re nearly there. This bread does not contain yeast – so there’s no time to wait for the dough to rise. Just mix and bake.
And while this whole wheat bread is super yummy straight out of the oven. Toasting it the next day and topping all those juicy raspberries in the bread with peanut butter is…well, beyond delicious.
