Ireland's Sweet Milk Bread
Sweet milk is whole milk that has not been processed. Many grocery stores sell sweet milk in their dairy sections. If you can't find sweet milk at your local grocery store buttermilk will work just as well. If the crust on your bread seems to hard, wrap it in a damp kitchen towel until it has completely cooled. This will soften the crust and make it much easier to cut.
Irish Gold Soda Bread
Cutting the shallow X in the top of the dough before baking allows the bread to expand instead of cracking during the baking process. If you are not fond of raisins try dried currants or dried cranberries instead.
