I lived in Ireland for three years in the70s. Irish Soda Bread does NOT have raisins and whatnot in it. Irish Scones have currants. Barmbrack which is found around Halloween is an Irish Soda Bread made with raisins & goodies, including little charms to predict your future, e.g. a wedding ring charm means you'll get married in the coming year. Irish Soda Bread was great for sopping soup.

Hello Sara,

Correct! Traditional Irish Soda Bread does not contain raisins. It has become a popular addition to many recipes however and we like to offer it as an option if preferred. Thank you for sharing these fun little tid bits about Irish Soda Bread with us!
