Irish Soda Bread

This week's recipe challenge for Baking with Julia was simple and quick.  This recipe had 4 ingredients:  flour, baking soda, salt, and buttermilk.  I added dried cranberries to make it more appealing to my family.  They all liked it.  Will make this one again.  All the other baker's links are here LYL: Irish Soda Bread and the hosts' blogs have the recipe.

Can't believe I'm 3 for 3 now with the recipes.  This was by far the most time consuming.  And lots and lots of dishes.  I didn't think my family would like the prune and apricot (and my son has a peanut allergy and doesn't like any nuts) so I did half with raspberry jam and half with mini chocolate chips.  My family liked it but I didn't think it was worth the time.  It was very difficult to roll the dough up and I ended up rolling it out on parchment paper and then using the parchment paper to roll the cookie up (like a bamboo sushi mat).  Maybe I will like it more tomorrow.  Taking it to my Bible Study for snack.
