Cool on Rack. Enjoy. This is a traditional recipe. It makes a great loaf of Soda Bread, easy to cut into slices and butter, delicious.

Alternate(s): (a) Round Loaf Style. If you want the rounded soda bread look, shape the dough into a round loaf, and place on a reased baking sheet. Cut an “X” on the top and over the sides of the loaf. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the bread sounds hollow when tapped.
(b) Caraway Seeds. Some of the younger irish don't enjoy the caraway seeds in the bread. It is acceptable to remove without substitution.
(c) Raisins: the traditional bread uses brown. To lighten up the loaf, you can use brown or golden or a 1/2 and 1/2 mixed.
