In honor of St. Patrick's Day

There's gotta be a shamrock in here somewhere, right?

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I baked Irish Soda Bread for the family. The combination of butter, buttermilk, raisins and caraway seeds makes a delicious flavor combination. Tart, spicy, buttery and sweet -- what else could you ask for??!! I always wonder why I save this recipe for March, it really would be great all year long. A little Irish Soda Bread and a cup of Irish Breakfast tea, what a delicious breakfast!

I adapted my recipe from Ina Garten's. I used low-fat buttermilk, more flour, and added caraway seeds. I also skipped the rolling out part, just kneaded in a bowl, which made it a little less messy.  I baked it in an Emile Henry Artisan Ruffled Pie Dish from William Sonoma which was the perfect container to assure that the bread baked evenly. I'm now only wishing I had one in green! 

Do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day? If so, how?
