According to The New York times the American version of Irish Soda bread may not be any more authentic than the American tradition of eating corned beef and cabbage on St. Patrick's day, but don't let that stop you from making this delicious bread. Are any of these options from various food blogs even remotely close to what is actually served in Ireland? Opinions seem to vary on that, but everyone raves about how good Irish soda bread tastes.

At Smitten Kitchen, Deb calls her version Blasphemous Bread and acknowledges it may not be authentic, but raves about the taste.
