Rustic, good, wholesome. Wonderful fresh with a pot of Irish stew or simply divine toasted with sweetened, cinnamon cream cheese. Most authentic Irish soda breads are made with whole wheat flour, but combinations of both white and whole wheat flour is a nice road to travel. You can also try some white spelt or white whole-wheat flour. You could serve this bread with corned beef and cabbage, a good Irish stew, or in hefty wedges with a sharp Irish or Guinness cheddar and pickled onions for a updated Ploughman's Platter.
