Irish Soda Bread Muffins


These Irish Soda Bread Muffins get their name from the fact that there is baking soda used in the batter to make them instead of traditional yeast and combined with buttermilk for a soft dough, bread like muffin.

We’ve chosen to add raisins and caraway seeds for flavor and eaten with a cup of cinnamon tea, they’re great on a winter’s afternoon!

To make Irish Soda Bread Muffins, you will need the following ingredients:

The ingridents are affordable and it's not as sugary and bad for ya as cupcakes are skip the frosting covered muffins and go for these!

Very enjoyable to eat and make, barely takes any time and they actually turned out soft on the inside.

Kids liked the taste of them so I'll be making them quite often cause it's the only way I can get them to eat their fruit haha.

Was kinda plain so had to add some kinda chocolate to it to make it more flavourful.
