Whole Wheat Irish Soda Bread with Cranberries

203. Today, my honey brought home a beautiful homemade Whole Wheat Irish Soda Bread. It was still warm from just being baked. My sweet friend baked it and shared it with our family. Instead of raisins, she used cranberries. They added a sweet surprise to every bite.
It was dense and crumbly, and when slathered with butter and jam, was a delicious breakfast meal.

Whole Wheat Irish Soda Bread with Cranberries

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk
3 Tablespoons honey
1 cup dried cranberries

Mix flour, baking soda and salt together in a large bowl. Whisk together the egg, buttermilk and honey. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and the cranberries. Mix together just till ingredients are combined.

Place parchment paper on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with flour and place dough onto the parchment paper shaping into a circle. Bake bread at 375 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Test with a toothpick. Serve warm with butter and jam.

"I believe in the sun when it's not shining,
I believe in love even when I feel it not,
I believe in God even when He is silent."

Your Banana Whoopie Pies look amazing. My husband likes the chocolate version called Gobs, but I would love these! Also am going to try your Irish Soda Bread with our jigs dinner this week. Thank you for the inspiration :)
