Irish Soda Bread And Guinness Butter Recipe @pinch

Crusty on the outside and tender inside, this Irish soda bread will be delicious on St. Patrick's Day. It's filled with flavor from the caraway seeds. Raisins add a pop of sweetness to the bread. Once baked, it's a dense bread but not dry. It freezes wonderfully too. We loved the Guinness butter on a piece of soda bread. Guinness has a robust flavor that's prevalent in the butter. It's sweet and savory at the same time. Enjoy for breakfast, as a snack, or alongside a bowl of hearty beef stew. This version is one of the best yet... the house smells heavenly!
