I made this with dried cranberries and fennel seed. Fennel is both sweet and savory so it is a good blend. yumm

This recipe is a home run. It's so easy to make and it's a huge crowd pleaser. I've made it 4 or 5 times now and it never lasts long. I'm thinking maybe next time I'll add some oange zest to give it another interesting dimension.

This recipe is so easy & quick to make. I've made a lot of irish soda bread recipes, this one is the best. Everyone loves the cranberries instead of raisins.
